It’s about to get literary up in here.

In the early 20th century, British composer Harry Farjeon wrote a short story titled Exit, in which a group of people at a Christmas party engage in an eerie parlor trick.  In 2012, filmmaker Daniel Zimbler was granted permission by the Farjeon estate to adapt the story, which he said had haunted him since he read it in middle school, into a short film.

The horror in Exit is purely psychological.  There are no jump scares, no blood, and, technically, no death.  The story, acting, and atmosphere are all comparable to an episode of The Twilight Zone (I mean this in a positive way– The Twilight Zone is top notch).  Julian Glover, Ed Coleman, and Helena Johnson star in this dark, mind-bending tale.
