A new short film is whistling its way onto Shudder...
...Directed by Jennifer Nicole Stang of Round Table Pictures, short-horror film The Whistler will be arriving on Shudder February 3rd, 2020. Inspired by Robert Browning's story The Pied Piper, the film has won a ton of awards, including Best International Horror Short Film at the Women in Horror Festival.
In The Whistler:
"Lindsey is forced to babysit her younger sister Becky one night. After falling asleep, Lindsey awakens to find her sister missing. Someone has taken Becky and may be after Lindsey as well."
Stang had this to say on the film: “Our intention with 'The Whistler' was to portray a classic horror story of a night of babysitting gone wrong with an original Pied Piper like monster who has been stealing children since the founding colonies of America in the 1600s. It’s a suggestive piece that evokes questions about the time-old theme of purity and sin; a theme, that despite ideological changes, remains strong. I hope that viewers enjoy putting the pieces together and are surprised by a few jump scares as well."
The film stars Karis Cameron and Baya Ipatowicz. It was produced by Karen Wong and Sasha Filipovich.
