Peter Dukes first came to our attention here at The Horror Hothouse when he sent us his short film The Beast starring Bill Oberst Jr. to review. Since then, we have had the pleasure of interviewing the great man himself (read the interview here) and being one of the first to watch his latest offering, horror comedy short, Little Reaper.
The premise is a simple one and when we initially read it, we couldn’t help but chuckle at the brilliance of it. Little Reaper centres on the grim reaper’s difficult teenage daughter who, in a bid to become ‘ungrounded’, takes over her father’s duties for one day. In typical teen fashion, her love affair with her mobile phone prevents her from successfully carry out her dad’s responsibilities and calamity ensues.
