The Dinner After

The Dinner After is a horror short film about a lassie going for her weekly tea with her mum and dad. Their abject cheerfulness bounces off her hesitancy in what you could at first put down to the normal tension of adult children visiting their parents. However it soon proves that more is going on, as Angela’s sister Lauren is noticeably absent, and although it goes unmentioned, their father is constantly calling Angela by her name. What follows is a film with genuine scares, moments of “GAH!”, as well as a heartfelt portrait of trauma.
