With more than a week of incredible horror movies there’s sure to be something for every kind of horror fan!

Last time NerdBastards spoke to Rosenthal was about his concept trailer The Last Blockbuster(You read that article already, right?) Now he’s back like Vanilla Ice, but instead of a brand new invention he’s showing off his latest horror short film, FEVER.

The summary is as follows: “A sick little girl and her skeptical mother are stalked by a malevolent supernatural entity.” FEVER is a frightening slice of suburban horror inspired by classics like ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ and ‘The Ring’ with a unique Rosenthal twist.

You can find the teaser for FEVER on Vimeo.
