shhhIndiecan Entertainment Inc has released an 11-minute short inspired by the lucid childhood dreams of Guillermo del Toro himself.

“This is an anti-bullying project created in our spare time with a low budget. A tribute to one the filmmakers we look up to since we were kids, Guillermo del Toro. It couldn’t have been completed without many sleepless nights and a lot of help & support from our talented cast, crew, family and colleagues. The film had a great response in the festival circuit and we’re very happy to finally share it with all of you here.”

Just in time for Halloween, “SHHH” is a spooky bedtime story about a boy named Guillermo who deals with the nightly visits of a monster. In this short film, the boy- tired of being afraid- learns to take matters into his own hands.

With so few actual horror movies out in theaters to celebrate Halloween this year, you could do a lot worse than checking out this cool short on Vimeo.
