Short Film Spotlight: Alex DiVincenzo’s ‘Be Us’

BE US / Lockbridge Productions

Lockbridge Productions has released the festival favorite horror short from Alex DiVincenzo BE US. The sci fi and dread filled short is available to see for horror fans all over ahead. The short follows a man who is being questioned about an alien encounter. Take a look at it ahead and as always followed by a quick review from HMU managing director Travis Brown.

A man is interrogated after encountering an otherworldly being in the six-minute sci-fi/horror short film Be Us.

Following a well-received festival run, Lockbridge Productions is pleased to release its latest effort online for free streaming.

Be Us is directed by Alex DiVincenzo, whose previous work includes The Horrors of AutoCorrect (distributed by Eli Roth’s Crypt TV), Cybershock 1999 (distributed by Troma Entertainment), and the 48 Hour Film Project winner Root of All Evil.

T.J. Frizzi stars in the film, which he co-wrote with DiVincenzo. The simple yet intriguing premise was conceived as a way to showcase the newcomer’s range while telling an original story contained to one room with a single actor.

“Be Us presented an exciting challenge to pull off an engaging, dynamic piece entirely in a monologue,” explains DiVincenzo. “T.J. Frizzi is one of my closest friends, and his performance – on which the entire movie hinges – exceeded my expectations.”

DiVincenzo’s next short, The Misplaced, will have its world premiere at the Boston Underground Film Festival in Boston, MA on March 23.


To film a whole short in the way of a monologue is bold and very imagitavie. T.J. does a fantastic job of drawing in the viewer as he encounters this out of this world creature. His performance allows the short to brood just enough to take your attention off the transformation we see ahead. Honestly I wouldn’t expect anything less from DiVincenzo!
