As ‘Game Of Thrones’ ends, we should expect to see more projects featuring the show’s stars. Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) is trading in her armor and swords and jumping into the world of horror.
Whelan stars in ‘The Blue Door’ an absolutely unnerving new horror short from Alter and Gunpowder & Sky. Whelan plays a district nurse assigned to care for a new patient in her run-down home. Upon arrival, we can immediately tell something is off, as the house is severely underkept and almost completely unattended. I was a big fan of how the director of ‘The Blue Door’ chose to build up suspense and scares later in the film, rather than trying to cram as many jump scares as possible in at once.
The atmosphere throughout the short is creepy, and at times haunting. You can really feel the tension as the movie rolls on. Even though the big reveal at the end came as a little predictable, it was still just as terrifying.
Check out the trailer for ‘The Blue Door’ below, and look for the full film as it debuts today on ALTER!
