31 Nights of Halloween: Hello

I've noticed that cell phones are a central feature of many of the shorts I've looked at this year, and many of the ones I've selected. Do we perhaps have the sense that even though the ability to call for help is closer than it's ever been before, we are just as isolated and exposed to the monsters as we've always been?

A cell phone is center to the horror in today's selection (including the habit they have of going missing...)

By the way... this one got knocked down from a Nine to an Eight rating due to some odd choices in sound mixing. It was distracting the way voices moved from left to right in stereo for no reason.

Hello (2013)
Starring: Claire Loy and Hugh Sweeny
Director: Hugh Sweeny
Rating: Eight of Ten Stars
