Beyond the Basement Door is an H.P. Lovecraft-inspired horror short from Jason Huls and Ten Wing Films!

Alistair, a genetic researcher, saves his own life from cancer by making a pact with some dark and dangerous people. The secret lies with whatever is making the odd sounds in Alistair's basement. The deal he made forbids him to go down there for three matter what he sees or hears. His sanity, his life, depends on it.

As the line between reality and delusion fades, Alistair struggles with nosy neighbors (Richard Pryor Jr.), a rival ex-boss (Daniel Roebuck, LOST) and haunting images of a lady in blue. Getting out of the house to visit a friend (Brenna Lee Roth) only makes his anxiety worse. With each passing hour, an urge to open the door slowly chips away at him...

Will he be able to resist? What's making all that noise beneath the floorboards? How is Alistair connected to the lady in blue and what is beyond the basement door?

@Tdgnt- Thank you! Any comparison to the X-Files I will take as a compliment! We're working on several other projects right now and we hope to release them here in the near future.

It looks like the vodo site redesign has changed up the look of the page. I'll fix that up soon.

I really liked this one. The photography feels a lot like an episode of the X-Files, which is a nice thing to feel. and it does make you want more, it feels like it could be just the first 20 or so minutes of a feature. Other than that, I wish the encode was a little better. But this is such a great achievement! Congratulations! I will follow your work from now on.

Thank you! I'm always on the hunt for some good HPL-influenced horror. Hopefully one of these days At the Mountains of Madness will see the light of day too.

Good Horror is getting harder to find.
