Welcome back to the series where I post the behind-the-scenes details of our Just Scare Me Horror Shorts.

Then it hit me. What better way to fully represent not only the film’s history, but my love of fourth-wall breaking and the idea of creating film and the mythos involved, but to talk about the seventh film:
