Prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster.

Seriously, this short is exceptionally well done.  Luna, written and directed by Antonio Perez, won Best Short Film in the 2013 Screamfest LA, Best Horror Short in the 2014 Los Angeles Fear & Fantasy Film Festival, and Best Cinematography in the 2014 Hollywood Horrorfest.  It was also the Official Selection of 18 other international film festivals.

Luna stars Daniela Leon, John Freeman, and Arlene Santana.  The film utilizes elements of mystery, atmospheric horror, and suspense before the terrifying climax.  The film gives the viewers two perspectives: a hunter and the person being hunted– a young girl.  Perez uses the age difference and visible inequality of power to toy with our emotions and senses of morality: do we root for the hunter or the hunted? Who is the hero of this story, and who is the antagonist?
