While still marketing the theatrical release of his debut feature film Pickings, filmmaker Usher Morgan teamed up with his producing partner Katie Vincent, as well as actors Elyse Price, Julie Reifers, Nicole Michele Guilbault, Joel Bernard, and Mary Ann Siwek, to bring to life a claustrophobic nightmare. The story follows Macy Nash, who wakes up after nearly drowning in the tub to find herself locked inside a dark and eerie bathroom. Things quickly go from bad to worse as she realizes that there's “something else” in the room with her.

An impressive festival tour gave Trapped Inside over 30 Best Short Horror nominations, as well as the Best Horror Short award at the New York Short Film Festival in 2018, The Chaney Award at the 2018 Flint Fright Night, and Best Horror at the Next Level International Film Festival.

Brian Penn with the UK Film Review writes, “This is how a horror film should be made!” and Jolly Moel with ScreenCritix adds, “What Morgan has been able to do is commit an act of emotional terrorism on his audience, and in doing so, has ended up making one of the best short horror films of the year.”

Trapped Inside is now available for streaming online:

“Trapped Inside is very good at being scary and excels at being unsettling. What Morgan has been able to do is commit an act of emotional terrorism on his audience, and in doing so, has ended up making one of the best short horror films of the year.” ~ ScreenCritix

“I rarely scare that easily watching a horror flick, but this sent a distinct shiver up, down and around my spine.” ~ UK Film Review

“Trapped Inside is a formidably striking example of indie horror that once more demonstrates buckets of blood are not at all required to send that purposeful chill down the spine, raise the hairs on your neck, and drive home its well-crafted journey into overt unease with a cleverly orchestrated viewpoint.” ~ One Film Fan
