BITS 2016: ‘My Brother Charlie’ – horror short review

MY BROTHER CHARLIE

MY BROTHER CHARLIE

Directed by Evan Hamza and co-written by both Hamza and Emil Terziev, short film My Brother Charlie was an unexpectedly creepy little tale. Running at 5 1/2 minutes, the short tells us the story of Charlie, who is mentally disturbed and constantly being sent away by his parents for “doing bad things”. Narrated by Charlie’s older brother, David, we quickly realize that all is not what it seems.

Starting off fairly innocuous and diving into a surprising ending, My Brother Charlie slowly but effectively unravels the story without feeling rushed or leaving us with too many questions other than “can we get another minute or two!?”
This one is a fun, quick time-waster and seemed to re instill my belief that children are awful and not to be trusted.
4/5
