La Boca Del Leon (Alfonso Garcia, 2013)

Let’s kick off our month of horror shorts with a genuinely scary film from Spain. Horror films have always been preoccupied with point of view, and so it’s been natural that the trope of the I-camera (those POV shots locked into the perspective of the monster or killer) has led the horror film, above all other genres, to embrace digital media and personal recording capabilities. Few films utilize this technology more efficiently and more effectively than Alfonso García’s 2013 short La Boca Del León (The Lion’s Mouth). This FaceTime exorcism is a gripping 5 minute watch and a great start to MMC!‘s celebration of bite-sized terror.
