WATCH: 'BILL' (2019), a short horror film by Sketchbook Pictures

Updated: May 21, 2021

A widow employs the dark arts to see her husband once more.

The film is a DIY Self Funded short film inspired by the Ghost our two young sons would talk to in the ceiling called ‘Bill’.

Shot in 1 day with a small crew.

Shot on Sony FS5, Edited in Adobe Premier, VFX in After Effects.

Outside the Spotlight says: Very simple yet genuinely chilling. With a fantastic performance by Roxanna Vilk who has perhaps one of the most expressive horror faces seen since the likes of Shelley Duvall, 'BILL' is brilliantly put together and leaves you wishing its 3 minutes was just the opener.
