What I thought:

This short video called “The Birch” is something I came across while surfing through YouTube. It is a very scary short horror film. I had to watch it twice. I have seen a ton of horror movies throughout my years but this is a video that really stood out. Not only is it extremely well done but it scared the hell out of me. The Birch is very realistic. There is violence and gore within its short 4 minutes and 42 seconds. Well done I look forward to seeing more from these filmmakers. Check out our article on some terrifying Stephen King books.
