Drew Daywalt - Master of Horror - Brings you "Doppelganger"

I recently discovered one of the finest horror filmmakers ever! Yeah, that's right, I said EVER! Drew Daywalt is the master of the horror short. There are many well known horror creators for whom I have great admiration, but none of them have had the consistent ability to make the hair stand up on the back of my neck (and include a clever twist) all in under 5 minutes! His latest effort, "Doppelganger", lives up to that benchmark handily. There is little point in giving an actual review of the piece itself, as any spoilers would probably ruin the 'creepalicious' effect. Yeah, I made that word up!


Drew Daywalt and his team at Daywalt Fear Factory consistently deliver stellar examples of what can be done with short form low or controlled budget filmmaking. You can see more of his hair raising storytelling at:
And if you liked "Doppelganger", make a point to also watch "Bedfellows". Am I exaggerating by calling Drew Daywalt a Master of Horror? Judge for yourself and let me know your opinion. And for God's sake...


  1. Hey that's pretty well done. Maybe a bit transparent (where it was going), but effective none the less. I'll have to check out the rest of their stuff. Thanks for the heads-up.


  2. That's whats so great about it though. Even though you know where its going it still does it well!
    Check out "Bedfellows" which is my favorite! Hair stands up on my neck;)
