From horror directors Ben Franklin & Anthony Melton, comes ‘The Birch’ – a twisted slice of fantasy horror. Produced in partnership with Crypt TV, you can watch the short film online now.

A bullied schoolboy takes drastic measures against his tormenter, summoning an ancient being in the woods using a spellbound book passed down through the generations of his family. A gruesome revenge tale that paints a monstrous evil as a loyal, yet potentially unstable, protector, this is the latest work from the team at Bloody Cuts.
