"It needs to be insisted on that horror films are not for the morbid, they're for the life-lovers."
This might be inspired by something haunting its way through the internet known as "two sentence horror stories". I highly recommend looking them up. Some of them are absolute genius.
Yes, I believe that was the case here. I recognized the scenario from one of those two sentence horror stories, and I think it was a good idea to make a short from it.
Holy shit, now THAT is creepy! There's a reason why I don't want kids :D
My thoughts exactly.
