A haunted Snapchat account may not sound too creepy, but you haven’t seen this girl’s inbox.
In 3 Seconds, a self-proclaimed “Snapchat horror short film,” one user finds herself wondering if she’s dealing with a prankster—or something a little more sinister.
As filmmaker Alex J. Mann told the Daily Dot via email: “I asked myself, ‘What’s the scariest possible thing that could happen on Snapchat?’ A few things came to mind: 1.) Receiving a Snapchat from yourself, or someone impersonating you. 2.) Receiving a Snapchat from a dead person, but I’ve already covered that in Green Dot. 3.) Receiving a Snapchat of you sleeping. Number 3 felt like the most applicable for a film.”
“Did i wake u? :)” just might be 2016’s “The call is coming from inside the house.”
