HE WHO FOLLOWS is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
He Who Follows is a thrilling short film, filled with suspense right up to the end! The viewers get an eerie feeling that someone is following the boy and the suspense builds up bit by bit, getting more and more exciting as the film develops. The ending itself is intriguing and keeps the viewer wanting more.

The storyline follows a boy as he hikes in the woods. While he's walking, he has a creepy feeling that someone is following him. He keeps turning around, trying to catch a glimpse of who is there. When he thinks he finally sees someone, he panics and runs to escape.

The story begins in the woods with the boy walking over and around various obstacles - all of which seem quite realistic and harmless. The suspense builds up as the boy hears noises and encounters various things that add to the intrigue. It all leads to a great cliffhanger at the end. I was surprised and impressed when the boy's "double" appears in one scene. The scene inside the concrete culvert adds intrigue and suspense. The angles and flashlight are well done. The music and sound effects keep the tense and eerie mood throughout, adding another level of suspense. The special effect of the boy's double is impressive. I was amazed to learn that Ben Berthy is the actor, director and producer. He portrays the actions and emotions of fear very well. The overall quality of the production is clear, from visuals to audio to editing. My favorite scene is the culvert scene. The culvert is dark; he has a broken flashlight and someone is coming closer. These all add up to create a creepy and thrilling mood and it makes it more suspenseful.

The message is that things may not be what you think they are. You may not be alone when you think you are. Someone may be watching.

I give He Who Follows 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 16. I think it will appeal to youth audiences who enjoy watching suspenseful thrillers. Reviewed by Carlee S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

A boy goes out for a lonesome stroll in the woods. But somehow, even when he's just by himself, he's not alone.
