Inspiration: A man is alone in a house, but a door keeps slamming itself shut. Is there something on the other side of the door?

Neat concept with an interesting (albeit highly ambiguous) ending. Can I ask what the black thing opening towards the camera is? 
Great ending. The build up felt a little long, but the payoff was great.  
Interesting concept... It didn't really need the narrative because the visuals and the dialogue were really enough to explain what was going on. I too want to know what the black thing was ;-) 
Wow-goosebumps at the end-enjoyed it. 
Great idea with the haunted door, i hope the actor were ok in the end. 
Sorry, I meant "the actor was ok" 
Love this creepy idea!!! Perhaps some scary music would work fine with it. Good luck! 
The ending definitely made me jump. I agree with Lee that the narration is superfluous, since it doesn't provide any information that the visuals don't already provide. Good job! 
nice and creepy.........loved the establishing shot....good acting and quite a scary movie....ending was good too!!all the best!!- jai nat ("The footprints")  
Great work Dan! very creative and fun to watch. I see what Lee and Bradley mean but also the whole house sitting thing is an extra layer u couldn't have gotten without dialogue. Good luck! 
hey dan... great work... i would have preferred it without the voiceover too... once it had been established that he's housesitting... very creepy :)  
Very creepy concept. I love how the lead character's struggle isn't so much getting out of the house, but to hold on to his sanity for dear life. I think when the black thing finally hits him, thats him breaking from reality.  
Think about your means of dramaturgy, I mean what is the difference between second and a third thing he puts on a door? The third thing has smaller effect and it seams that your hero got stupid or he is giving up. Good luck.
