ПЕРЕХОД (The crossing in the english version) is a Russian horror short film directed by Arseny Syuhin. Inspired by the early films of John Carpenter and a particularly unnerving underpass the director walked through on his way to work, The Crossing has some impressive FX work and a haunting premise. Set in a subway late at night, Arseny Syuhin’s 7-minute short takes a recognisable, ubiquitous setting and toys with the fears we’ve all probably experienced using it, by making it the home of a blood-thirsty creature. Shot in a real underpass over three nights, with the help of a Blackmagic camera, tripod and a production crew of just three people, though The Crossing features many tropes of the genre, this certainly doesn’t make it any less effective in the scares department.
