LUNA - a horror short film

What is LUNA?

LUNA (Spanish for MOON) is a short horror film about of a young girl who witnesses the murder of her family by a mysterious killer. Now she must try to survive before the killer finds her. 

The story takes place in a house located in a remote, desolate area - miles  from civilization. Think of all those small highway towns that time forgets. After a cold-blooded killer invades a family's quiet home, the sole survivor -- a young girl -- must try to escape before the mysterious killer finds her. However, the full moon will reveal everyone's true identity. There are a lot more twists to this story that we can't reveal -- but it's definitely a "classic monster" movie!
