Guardians is a proof-of-concept for horror feature "REUNION" now in development at Turtle Canyon Films. It will be set in the same school but featuring an entirely new storyline, taking place some time after the events of this chilling short.


There are many subtle, and no so subtle references to some of Alastair's favourite horror movies of years gone by. How many can you spot?
