2017 horror short The Dollmaker packs a lot of creepiness into a short runtime. It starts in the opening shot, which depicts a casket containing a child’s corpse. The image lingers uncomfortably long on the screen as we listen to a conversation possibly even more ominous than the visual. A bereaved mother is speaking with a man who requests something the dead child wore, a lock of hair, and one of his prized possessions. In any horror story, nothing good ever comes of messing with a dead person’s stuff.
