Review in Brief: Scare Me (2020)

SCARE ME is an absolute joy, full of mischief and creativity and completely different to every other horror anthology film out there. A simple enough premise – an aspiring horror writer waits out a power cut in an isolated cabin with a successful published author and both proceed to tell and perform scary stories to outdo each other. The sound design accompanying the stories is genre mainstream quality but everything else is left to your imagination and the game performances of Josh Ruben and Aya Cash who pantomime the events and characters of their stories for our amusement. It’s funny, intriguing and sweet until it definitely isn’t anymore. Likely won’t satisfy every horror hound, but for anyone looking for something a little different, it’s well worth catching on Shudder. SSP
