Over the course of the last five years, there have been a lot of movies with the gimmick that they have been shot on the iPhone, but few have pulled it off as well as this incredibly scary little short film made by Clement Deneux for the 2011 Disposable Film Festival, a film festival dedicated to short films shot on smartphones and either pocketable cameras.
It’s called Les Ongles, or The Nails, and it would be a discredit to describe the plot in much detail, except to say it’s a found-footage-style short that takes place during a party in Paris in which one guest is compelled to quit a nasty habit. You’re going to want to watch this.
Les Ongles won first prize at the Disposable Film Festival, and no wonder. Trust us: this is awesome, the perfect movie for Halloween. It’s probably not work safe, though, for violence and supernatural horror (although no sex and nudity), so be careful watching this in front of your boss.
Happy Halloween from Cult of Mac!
