A Look At “Latchkey’s Lament”

A comic artist, Troy Nixey landed many an aspiring filmmaker’s dream job this year – directing the upcoming feature film remake of the classic 70’s supernatural horror TV movie “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark”.

How does one get to be in charge of a feature starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce, and produced by Guillermo del Toro? His superb short film “Latchkey’s Lament” goes a big way into explaining that.

A work of strong imagination and craftsmanship, the acclaimed short has been playing festivals for several years but now, at last, has arrived online in full form.
