This really had a great opening, and the build up was great. I've never been a big fan of in your face horror, but I guess for those who are, this would be just up their street!
Personally, I would of cut all of the earlier scenes of the wife with blood on her dress but kept everything else the same. The shot of the wife with her back to the husband in the kitchen was especially good, far more scary not seeing any blood in my opinion.
Anyway, well done and a great short.
