Chilean director Victor Uribe’s horror short Necrolovers is a breath of fresh air. It’s a very cool throwback to the old horror of the 1950’s when the likes of Abbott and Costello were fending off the creatures of the night. It was a special time for horror as the creatures became bigger and badder as well as a brand of filmmaking that is all but lost. Uribe’s short takes us all the way back to that fantastic era with Necrolovers; a lover-letter to the horror films of the 1950’s.
With the short completed; Uribe is gearing up for a festival run and has released a trailer. It was filmed in high contrast black and white making each frame a beautiful shot into the past.
Set free by a strange female force, a madman manages to escape from a psychiatric hospital. The force guides him up to an old cemetery where he discovers looters desecrating the wrong grave. Supernatural forces join with the maniac’s rage triggering an apocalyptic ending.
