Watch Enthralling Award-Winning Short Horror-Drama 'Wake' #Halloween

An oldie, but goodie on this Halloween day, October 31, 2014… 

It’s a short film we featured on this blog at least 2 years ago, so long-time readers will likely remember it. For those who haven’t seen it, written and directed by Bree Newsome, and titled "Wake," the 21-minute horror-drama film’s synopsis reads: "A repressed woman does away with her domineering father, freeing herself to pursue her heart’s desire. Using a local folk magic called "root-work," she conjures a demon to aid her in creating the man of her dreams– but soon finds herself in a waking nightmare."

The film stars Sahr Ali, Christina Faison and Benton Greene.
