– And Princess Ariel
and all of her friends lived happily ever after, the end. You want a puppy, huh, baby? Okay, well, we’ll get you one soon. I love you so much. Good night. – Wait, Mommy. Could you keep the lights on again? There’s something over there. – Oh, Ariel. Remember, we told you,
they’re just shadows. – I know, but it scares me. – Shadows can’t hurt you, baby. You’re a big girl. So let’s be brave for Mom and sleep with the light off tonight, okay? – Okay. – Good night, baby, I love you. (dramatic music) (hard breathing) (dramatic violin music) (phone ringing) – So, Ariel, are the rumors
true, did you get it? – No, they went with Steve. – What? What a bunch of freaking idiots. I can’t believe they picked him over you. You’re the smartest person I know. And besides, Steve, he’s
got the brain of a fig. – I know. It’s so weird that I got you so good, because I’m the new
senior VP of accounting. (shrieking) – Holy shit, I knew it! Oh my God, I’m so excited. And you know what it means, don’t you? – What? – You’re taking me out
for drinks from now on. – Oh my God, all right, fine. Oh, you know what, that’s
a good idea, actually. We should go out. – Yeah, we’re gonna celebrate. (phone ringing) – [Ariel] Hey, Mom. – [Mom] Hey, sweetie, are you okay? – [Ariel] Yeah, I’m good. – [Mom] So tell me about the job. – [Ariel] Oh the job. – [Mom] Yeah. – Yeah, I wasn’t even
sure I was gonna get it. But, Mom, they said that no
one else even came close. – [Mom] That’s good, wow. – Yeah, I know, I start Monday. – [Mom] Nervous? – I’m actually a little bit nervous, but I have this whole weekend to prep, so I know that I’ll be good. – [Mom] Well just make
sure to get some rest and take care of yourself. – Yes, I will. – Ariel.
– No, it’s fine, it’s fine. (dramatic music) – [Mom] Ariel. Ariel, are you there? Sweetie, are you okay? Ariel? Ariel? Ariel, are you okay? – Yeah, no, sorry, Mom, I– – [Mom] Sweetie, you scared me. – I just thought I, okay,
I’ll call you later. (gasping) (soft dramatic music) (hard breathing) (hard breathing) (phone dialing) – The Shadow Man is not
a ghost, or a demon. He may not even be from this universe. But he comes into our world, our dimension. (soft dramatic music) – The Shadow Man, he’s destroyed my life. I can’t leave the room. I can’t, I can’t sleep. The first time I saw him
I was seven years old. And then he went away. It’s been over 35 years. And now he’s back. I carry a flashlight, all the time. I’m afraid of every shadow. Last night, I left the camera recording him and, he was watching me for over three hours before I woke up. And I noticed him just watching me. (soft dramatic music) (soft music) – Whoa. Putting together a search party, are you? – What, no. I’m just trying to solve
a problem that I have. – Well what’s the problem? Maybe I can help you find the right tool. – I don’t think that you’d understand. – Try me. I run a hardware store. Everyone who comes in here has problems. – I’m just trying to get rid
of some shadows in my house. – Well, kiddo, you may be
using the wrong tool for that, seeing as light causes shadows. (soft music) (chuckling) – [Ariel] I’m gonna take these. – Buy one, get one free. (soft music) (soft dramatic music) (banging) (soft dramatic music) (dramatic music) (screaming) (screaming) (dramatic music) (hard breathing) (yelling) (hard breathing) – Hello there, ma’am. I’m sorry, your door was open. Here, I’ve got your package. I see you’re a little busy, I’ll just. (soft piano music) (crying) (laughing) – Oh my God, Ariel, what happened? Do I need to call the cops? – No. – Okay, okay, Okay, sit down, tell me what happened. (crying) – I was attacked. – Who did this to you? – Look. Look, that’s him. That’s the guy that I saw
when I was seven years old. And all these people have seen him too. – The Shadow Man? Ariel, these people are
crazy, you can’t believe that. Who really did this to you? – You think I’m crazy? – No, oh, sweetie, I’m sorry. You wanna get cleaned up? (soft piano music) (crying) – Can I take a shower? – Of course. Of course. Why don’t you stay here? Okay, sleep on the couch. Stay as long as you need to. Whatever that was, we outnumber it now. He’s not coming back, and if he does, you know I will kick his
ass straight to hell. (soft piano music) (upbeat music) (soft dramatic music) (door banging) (soft piano music) – Shit. (TV static) (soft dramatic music) – I know you’re worried, but,
sweetie, he’s not coming back. I mean, no offense, but I’m
a lot stronger and scarier. I scared him off. – Okay, okay, pardon me. – No. No. (soft dramatic music) Seriously? I don’t think anybody’s been
here in the last 10 years. Ooh. A night of passionate lovemaking. Don’t mind if I do. (giggling) (soft dramatic music) – Good morning, young lady. So, can I help you find anything? – Um, you wouldn’t happen to have any books on Shadow People? (soft dramatic music) – You have seen him, haven’t you? – Yes. – Oh, my dear girl. – Have you ever seen him? – No. He does not show himself to just everyone. But I have researched the
Shadow Man almost all my life. You see, my brother was marked by him. There are many legends, but I believe that he comes
from another universe, another dimension. Hunting specific people. You were chosen by him, but
no one can tell you why. – He can’t have me. – Come. My dear girl, follow me. As you can see, my research has been extensive. But, it is not without reward. – Do you know how to beat him? – No, hardly, my dear. No, I do not mean to discourage you. What I meant to say was I have just begun to understand the pieces, the bits of what he is. And, how he travels. – Travels? – Yes. To our time, our age. You see, some believe that mirrors are his portals to another dimension. Mirrors control light and shadow, in a very very powerful way. (soft dramatic music) – Can I ask you what
happened to your brother? – My brother (weeps). He is gone. (soft dramatic music) – Look at those boots, they’re hideous. I’m not gonna pay 125 bucks. They should pay me 125
bucks just looking at them. (phone pinging) Oh shit. I totally forgot I was
supposed to meet Jason for drinks tonight. – What? – Oh, I’m gonna cancel. Don’t worry, I’ll stay here. I can see him another night. – Oh no, no no no. Go, you should go, don’t cancel. – I’m not gonna leave you, okay? I’m your protection, remember? – I’ll be fine. I have to prep for Monday anyway. Honestly, you should go. – You sure? – Yeah, have fun. – Okay, well, you should prep, right? Okay, okay, I’ll go, I’ll go. But when I get back, we
can, we can hang out, right? – Sure. – Okay. (soft music) (door opening and closing) (soft music) (keys clicking) (soft music) – Leave me alone. (hard breathing) (soft music) (soft dramatic music) I know you’re here. Just come and get me. (dramatic music) (gasping) (gasping) (dramatic music) (hard breathing) I got you now. (rattling) (glass breaking) (dramatic music) (wind blowing) (gasping) (gagging) (soft music) – Morning. Good morning. Morning. Barbara. Barbara! – Yes, Mr. Barrington. – Where’s Ariel? – Uh, she’s not here yet. – I can’t believe it. I promote her on Friday,
she’s late on Monday. It’s 10:15 and she’s late. – I need you to sign this,
the client needs you. (muffled talking) (soft piano music) (whispering) (coughing) (hard breathing) (groaning) (dramatic music) (soft music) (whispering) (dramatic music) (dramatic violin music)

  1. I used to see it a lot as a child. Now as an adult, I've only seen it a few times. Don't remember ever seeing it with eyes though, or with a hat. It was just very large, like a large man.

    Sigh I was debating on whether or not I should post this comment since I probably sound like a nut to those who haven't seen it, but I'm just going by what I've personally experienced and seen. There's no rational explanation for what I saw. For those who HAVE seen it, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

  2. Great flick!
    I have to admit some of the comments here are rather amusing, but not a ridicule you type of amusing. I've had these same experiences.
    These occur when in a semi-lucid state. There's been a lot of research done on this. Look into it.
    Now, this doesn't make them less terrifying or feel less real.
    To me, the fact that they only occur rarely is a disappointment, as with actual nightmares. I wish they happened regularly. The fright is deeply personal, therefore much more intense! It's times like these, that rob me of my objectivity, that make it so enjoyable.

  3. Sorry folks but Im a "horror Flick" Junkie for the Babes…. but seriously this was a very well done Short Really good effects and Great Acting

  4. I see shadows a lot, but only once did I see the figure of a man. Still after years I wonder if I imagined it. If it had been there and gone in a second I'd say yes, but it walked down a sideway and up a driveway right in front of me. I still see the shadows though.

  5. Great short film!!! I love the ending (even though I didn't want it to end๐Ÿ˜’). Now maybe we'll get Shadow Woman??

  6. Hmmmmโ€ฆ. If you can't fight them, join them? ๐Ÿ™‚ Now she's immortal and can have her fun playing with humans, first of all with that slave-driver Mr.Barrington :-))) But in her place I'd just scare shit outta him, drive him mad, but won't admit into the Team.

  7. The first time i saw a shadow being i was around 10 or 11. I was just coming down the street, around noon, sunny day, and as i was about to make a turn to the next corner, i saw a (featureless) black head peeking at me right there. It pulled back fast, once i looked. I took that last step and… there was nobody. The street was actually empty. Bizarre, but no big deal. Years passed and i put it aside. More recently, on one night that i slept over at my (ex) girlfriend's, i woke up in the middle of the night [sleep paralysis] and there he was, by the darkest corner of the room, along with a shorter dark entity that i somehow interpreted as being an old woman (even though i couldn't see past its darkness). It talked to me, although i can no longer remember most of it. Then, suddenly, it attacked… It glided fast towards me and went for my throat. but i grabbed his wrists and actually outpowered him away. The touch is hard to describe, it felt amost like electricity. It disappeared, but made a comeback in the early morning and repeated the attack. Once again i managed to push him away. For the next days i was terrified of going to bed, but it hasn't returned since, i don't know if because i defeated him twice, or simply because i never slept there again.
    I'm an atheist and a skeptic, and i don't buy easily into claims. But make no mistake, this phenomenon is real, shadow people really exist, and i would love to know what they are and what what is their purpose.

  8. was she really aware her friend had mirrors in her attic.??? though good but could have cut the seizing of the shadow man with the mirror, it felt impetuous rather than getting the feeling that she wanted to put an end to it once and for all.

  9. she's promoted twice..
    First by her boss,second by shadow man…
    Shadow woman ha ha ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŽƒ

  10. So like is she just unable to turn the light on herself in the beginning : D other than that great film

  11. fucking ignorant! they have not the slightest clue what these visions are really. sleep paralysis is a biological condition and these are simply a distorted view of of or rooms and the shadows always there.

  12. "I would open my windows,No way could I live in a dark house,I have heard that Shadow People are Dangerous,And a lot of people have claimed they have seen them,They are also on Ghost Hunting Shows,How Scary!!!"

  13. Any person, be it even a courier guy, after seeing those wounds and cuts would have asked if everything is okay. Ariel picked up all those giant mirrors in her friend's house without any effort and what happened to her friend, didn't she return ?

  14. For your consideration. POS shadow voyeur, used to wake me up around 3:00am and stare at me till daylight; it got so routine that I wore my fear thin freezing up about it: I couldn't work up the nerve to walk past it to the bathroom, ended up peeing myself at night for a decade. Eventually, I learned what a straight arm offense was against an opponent; shortly thereafter I decided 'whats the worst that could happen', imagined (a dimension of slimy twilight blackened by spoor powdering the air and ground and filaments of ichor black mucus suspended between obscured high grounds) if I fell in (to where it comes from) I'm not going to last long there: I planted my foot against the far wall and vaulted the length of the room into the closet on a collision course through it. I quaked the house, arrested my pounce against a wall stud; a moment hence I had been lying on my stomach gauging whether I'd melt into it or fall through its hole in the darkness: I wasn't really prepared for anti climax.

  15. So after she took over the shadow man's place๐Ÿคค what happened to the Snowman๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค”

  16. I have nightmares and hallucinations. I wake to see something lurking in the shadows. I have to sleep during the day so if I wake up I don't see anything. I now even sleep on the sofa in the den cuz I can't handle sleeping in my room anymore . I pray before I fall asleep that I don't have any hallucination or nightmares. I mostly have them about mice, spiders and a man who just watching me. I wake sometimes feeling something crawling in my bed. The other day I had a doctor's appointment so I had to try to fall asleep. I kept seeing something watching me. It looked like an evil cat. I ended up staying up all night trying to escape it. I take sleep meds to help me fall and stay asleep :'(

  17. Shadow people, Hat Man, Incubus, succubus, whatever you want to call them. They are all caused by sleep paralysis. I've had them from childhood and still get them occasionally. Though not as severe.

  18. Why are the cute ones always the craziest ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Also, at [25:25] "Leave me alone" ? Yeah OK, hurt his feelings why don'tcha ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, fun to watch, such a sad ending but loved it !

  19. I saw one in my room but I think it was a woman I was asleep in my room and I felt like I was being watched I turned and looked towards my tv and I saw this dark shadow but for some reason I could
    Sense that it was a woman holding a baby I texted a coworker told him what I was seeing and he told me to start praying so I did then suddenly I saw a small white figure then turned to see if the figure in front of my tv was still there and it was gone luckily I've never seen either of them in years

  20. Fucking hilarious when she blacks put the house and the mail man sees she has blood all over her face and then just kind says he will leave her be. Hahaha

  21. Welp…my attachment/shadow person only observes. I should count myself very lucky ๐Ÿ˜•. It wears a hoodie but apparently the hat and trench coat are common.
    Can't believe I'm only seeing this now. Thought I'd seen most,if not all,of your films,Seraph. I've just started it but if your other movies are anything to go by,I'll be impressed๐Ÿ’œ

  22. Well done short–tv? Reminds me of a little girl I heard about sleeping over at a relative's and asking her mother to leave the light on. When her mother pointed out that she slept in the dark at home, she replied, "Yes, but, Mama, that's MY OWN dark!" Some logic to that.

  23. They Exist. Years ago I saw one in an enclosed stairwell while walking down. It came suddenly and slid up against the wall towards me. There weren't eyes though.. Only the human form and quiet tall. It made no noise at all. Nothing at all was in front of it. Every single time till this day… I swear I get goosebumps remembering what I saw.

  24. Well, that was an interesting take on the Shadow Being.
    I do have a question though. If you are being stalked by a Shadow Being, why in the hell would you go total black out in your apartment? That's not even logical.
    Me…..every flippin' light in my house would have 100 watt bulbs in them and be turned on. Hell, I'd run down to the nearest hardware store and buy every single damn spot light/work light and turn those hush puppies on. Candles too. Oh! Flashlights everywhere. I mean everywhere; hanging from the ceiling, in every single drawer and cupboard, under the furniture and at least 20+ in bathroom 'cause I ain't getting caught with my britches down. Hell no.
    The International Space Station would be able to see my house.
    Then again, whenever I've seen Shadow Beings, I either ignore them or tell them to take a flippin' hike. Ain't got time for their crap.
    But hey, that's just me.

  25. Really good story but, the man in the bookstore was really corny! I'm glad they didn't show any more of him or I would have turned it off!

  26. The damn mailman could have ask her if she was ok & what's going on being she had blood on her nose and mouth!! Unbelievable"๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝ

  27. I guess Shadow needed a mrs. Shadow LOL he said I'm getting tired of being in the shadow all by myself LOL now all they need is a bottle of chateau get it a bottle of chateau LOL

  28. An awkward spooky story, looks like everyone knew the "shadow man" but no one spoke about him! But I loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Not only was the acting convincing, but the story is super creepy, and will definitely freak out anyone whose ever had sleep/ dream paralysis. (You've been warned.)

  30. Ive experienced the shadowman when I was about 5 the last one 28,the one I saw wore a cloak not a hat. I couldnt move, it was like I came out of my body. Science just has to make money off of this by giving it a name called SLEEP PARALYSIS. The odd thing is…. Why does everybody see THE SAME shadowman?



  33. Now, this is the scariest Shadow Man/Woman "I've" seen in a long time. Kept me on the edge of my bed. However, I did see the ending coming. I knew after the mirror scene she was done for. but turning her into a shadow person, I did not see that coming ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘& a bottle of Rum!

  34. i wonder if the shadow man passed the torch to an unwilling ariel, just as he was passed the torch and so on? seems like it. if so, i wonder what happens when they are finally free? death or do they return to living? granted it would be 40+ years in the future. anyway, AMAZING! creative and scary and i want more!!
