EP11 – The Birch (The Beginning)

A bullied schoolboy takes drastic measures against his tormenter, summoning an ancient being in the woods using a spellbound book passed down through the generations of his family.

Bloody Cuts’ Writers/Directors/Producers Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton teamed up with Crypt TV to bring you another delicous slice of terror. The Birch is based on a story by the monster maestro Cliff Wallace and shot by DOP Jonny Franklin.

We wanted to create something beautiful with The Birch, and thanks to a very talented cast and crew we feel we’ve created something very unique for both Bloody Cuts and Crypt TV

– Anthony and Ben

The Birch is easily our most successful short with over 20 million views through Crypt TV on facebook as of 2018 and we couldn’t be more stoked at the response it has received.
