The latest Uzumaki trailer introduces Junji Ito, the mild-mannered Japanese master of horror, one of the greatest horror fiction creators alive. He’s mildly afraid of cats. Via io9:
In the newest teaser for Cartoon Network’s adaptation of his masterwork, Uzumaki, we meet Ito and learn about the creation of the upcoming miniseries. For such a menacing thing, it’s quite a pleasant little glance. We also meet the other creators behind the anime, all of whom are as fascinated with the unknown terror of Ito’s works as Ito himself. The warm passion would be a blast, if it wasn’t pointed at something so menacing.

Box 616 is a Mitch Glass science fiction short film about a man finding something in a bank vault that threatens everything he knew. Via Gizmodo:
As we saw in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, strange things can be hidden inside bank vaults. Sometimes, they have the ability to change the world. Dust has released a short film where a man is given a key to a mystery that threatens everything he ever knew.
Box 616 is the latest sci-fi short film from Mitch Glass (who also directed the stellar short Again™), shot for two days inside a bank vault with a budget of about $US800 ($1,176). It’s about a man named Malcolm Crowe, who’s informed by the local bank that a trust, well, entrusted to him by his grandfather is now available. The safety deposit box, empty except for a single key and an old matchbook, had instructions to be opened on a specific day, which has now come to pass.
