Luke Bather - 31st Oct 2016

Deviating ever so slightly from our usual fare, but just in time for Halloween, Remi Weekes takes a break from directing duo Tell No One to presents his short film Tickle Monster, commissioned by Film 4.

This short film sees an aspiring grime MC hanging out at his girlfriend's house, only for her to reveal that she shares her room with the Tickle Monster. The ensuing chaos that unfolds is equal parts funny and uncomfortable. Which I suppose is just like being tickled.

Great pacing by Weekes is matched by some excellently creepy, voyeuristic cinematography which makes the single-room short feel incredibly claustrophobic. And when it comes to shocks, it fully delivers.
