Ten Steps, The

Ireland (MIFF 2005, fiction)

Director: Brendan Muldowney

[The Ten Steps] has all the ingredients of a standard horror yarn: a creaky house with a terminal draft problem and a babysitter who should know better than to go into the cellar during a blackout. Brendan Muldowney transcends this familiar material, delivering the 10 creepiest minutes you'll spend in a cinema this year.
