*Watch It Right Now* — LONG DAYS

When he won our August ’12 Short Film Contest, Adam Keleman only made a trailer available for his truly haunting Long Days. Fortunately, enough time has passed that Keleman has finally decided to post the whole film online. Lucky for us! As I wrote in my full HTN review

Long Days is a sterling example of extremely accomplished directing, and here’s the clearest reason why: as soon as it begins, you feel it. Even if you haven’t read a description and have absolutely no idea what it’s about, a haunting pall is nonetheless immediately cast; you can just sense that darkness is on the horizon.
