Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.09.11] Finland movie trailer news short horror

8 is a psychological horror short film about people who have to relive their worst memories in a cave that projects the human subconscious. It asks the following questions: Do you really know someone before you've learned his darkest secrets? Can you see a human being behind his actions? Are you able to confront your past and forgive?

We're told the film will be available for a digital download at the end of the month and as a DVD later on.

Check out the trailer below.

The film's director, Miro Laiho, says:

"My dream is to raise the awareness of Finnish genre film on an international level, because I think that we Finns have the potential to create not only the everyday drama or comedy films but something more out of our crazy imagination. “8” merges dark drama to psychological horror reaching surreal levels.

I’ve always been fascinated by the structure of human mind and how we maintain defence mechanisms and therefore a certain false identity unable to find our true selves. If we could face difficult things and have the courage to be ourselves, it would be much easier to live. I hope that “8” evokes thoughts about finding one’s self, seeing humanity and believing in the healing power of love. As humans we are all alike and we must learn to help one another."
