The Horror Honeys: Creepy Kids: Short Film ~ FISH FRIEND

Creepy Kids: Short Film ~ FISH FRIEND

You never forget your first pet: this is the lesson ten-year-old Sally learns when she discovers, the hard way, that her new goldfish is actually a bloodthirsty piranha. As Sally and her fish friend forge a lasting relationship, the carnivorous pet wreaks havoc on an unsuspecting neighborhood.

I'm a big lover of short films, especially when they're endearing, and especially when they're creepy. Fish Friend accomplishes all of that in a very short amount of time, and with minimal dialogue. Be prepared to fall in love with Vincent the piranha, and little Sally and her lemonade stand, and get some giggles along the way too. Sidenote: I love Sally's taste in pets. 

The short is by director Jordan Blum (American DadCommunity), producers John Swartz (Lucasfilm) and Justin Wagman (OJ: The Musical), editor Spencer Houck (CommunityFranklin & Bash) and cinematographer Devin Doyle, with Nikki Hahn starring as Sally.
