This smart and shocking short taps into the current trend in retro board-gaming with a nostalgic spin on the cheesy vintage game MYSTERY DATE. But as you’ll discover soon enough, that’s where the players’ fun ends… and their nightmares begin.
“Open the door to see what I look like…”
Written and directed by Zak White and Todd Spence, YOUR DATE IS HERE has been making the festival rounds lately (it was a scream-inducing favorite at Fantastic Fest), and since its online premiere, it’s been scoring high-fives from the likes of BuzzFeed, Bloody Disgusting, Nerdist and Gizmodo.
Watch it now… and hang on tight!
If you had fun on YOUR DATE, there’s more behind the door: White and Spence previously conceived another skin-crawling short titled WHERE IS IT… which is my first encounter with their jump-worthy works.
You can find both shorts on the Midnight Video YouTube channel… and I hope there are plenty more to come!
