I used to pick at my nails. I will NEVER do that again...
...If you're looking for something gruesome to watch this morning, (and why wouldn't you be?), writer/director Colin MacDonald's new horror short Hangnail is now on Youtube, a short which will forever make you rethink picking at yourself.
Here's the synopsis:
"That hanging piece of skin. That painful chunk of tissue that won’t let go. You rip and tear at it, but the flesh holds on. This common nuisance turns into a grisly nightmare in 'Hangnail'."
The film stars Nicole Barron and features an original score by horror film journalist/composer Jerry Smith.
The short was produced by MacDonald and Barron in a single night during quarantine in the couple's Nova Scotia home.
Watch it below, and prepare to feel queasy.
