Up for a good scare? Check out this short thriller by artiach!
Hermanas tells the story of a promise between two sisters and what happens when one of them can not meet the pledge.
“Hermanas” (Sisters) was a collaboration by Miguel Artiach (artiach) and Marta Rueda. The film starts innocently enough, with two sisters pledging to stay together forever and having the paper they wrote their promise on be swept away by the stream. Unfortunately, shortly after this, one of the sisters dies. After a visit to her tomb, the remaining sister goes home and starts reminiscing some of their happy memories. That’s when strange things begin to happen, as the dead sister follows the other one around. If you’re watching “Hermanas” closely and with earphones on (like I did!) some of the scenes might surprise you. Just a fair warning to the squeamish: the film ends on quite a gory note. Nonetheless, “Hermanas” is something that fans of horror and thriller movies would surely appreciate!
