At SXSW Online this month, director Julian Terry shared his inventive horror short film, Don’t Peek.
Centered around Animal Crossing, the feature chronicles a young woman dealing with a ghost that is desperately trying to escape from her Nintendo Switch. Starring actress Katie C’etta, the entirety of the film features no dialogue with every sound in the six-minute film coming from Animal Crossing. C’etta’s character’s interactions with the specter generate building fear that ultimately ends in a suspenseful ending. According to reports, Don’t Peek is now set to be adapted into a full-length film to be produced by Majd Nassif under production house Bazelevs.
