Plot

Pirouette is about Kate, a stonecutter by trade, who lives in the city suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. During a regular bargain hunt at local garage sale, she purchases an odd ballerina box.

Upon returning home, Kate finds out that the ballerina figurine has disappeared. That night she wakes up in the middle of the hallway, had she been sleepwalking?

Or did someone drag her there?

It's a really difficult task to achieve genuine suspense and originality with a short, but PIROUETTE nailed it!The sound design is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see what Peter and Glenn do next!

★★★★

I will never not want to see horror movies or shorts about creepy boxes with symbols. This really needs to be given a feature length film and giant practical effects budget because this story would be awesome on the big screen! I want more!
