Check Out the Terrifying 3 Minute Short WHITE WILLOW

Horror films don’t always need complicated plots and back stories to be effective. Sometimes simplicity can be both beautiful and horrifying. Case in point: Ryan Swantek’s latest horror short film, WHITE WILLOW.

Nevertheless, Buck’s reputation has persisted for nearly two decades among extreme-cinema fans as a transgressive and challenging artist with a knack for […]
