Intelligent Horror Best Left Unopened

Episode 3: Two Seconds

Posted on April 22, 2019

Gambling. Embezzlement. Fraud. A string of bad decisions have brought Bill to the breaking point–standing alone deep within a remote forest, ready to end it all. But the single gunshot that rings out is not his own.

He is not alone.

As the only witness to a grisly murder, does Bill follow through with ending his life? Or risk having to pay for his own crimes to report what he’s seen?

What happens next is a back-and-forth psychological battle to determine who will make it out alive. Could a mysterious, old steamer trunk hold the key to their fates?
