There’s a twist near the end of Pentagram Girl, directed by Bryan Enk, that is one of the most startling moments in recent memory. This short horror film, written by Enk and David Robson, is well and good until then. When those final few minutes hit, instant game-changer.

Jenna (Lisa Anne Sclar) has finally agreed to an interview surrounding her late father’s legacy. Eerily, her dad, Peyton (Linus Gelber), and mother, Margot (Stephanie Cox-Williams), died on the same day, one year apart. The reporter who got the once-in-a-lifetime exclusive, Jordan (Arielle Hope), comes in hot with questions about Peyton’s dalliances with the supernatural and what it means. Rumor has it that Jenna’s family house even has a basement collection of items and trophies from supernatural beings. If not true, why does Jordan keep seeing flashes of the Pentagram Girl while conducting the interview? If real, what does the evil entity want and why?

Rumor has it that Jenna’s family house even has a basement collection of items and trophies from supernatural beings.”

Some of the CGI in Pentagram Girl is not very good. Specifically there’s a spinal cord spear that is poor integrated into the scene. But, the practical effects are very good. The bloodletting scenes are particularly well-executed, adding to the horror elements. And let’s not forget the makeup on Sclar as the Pentagram Girl-it’s absolutely killer, enhancing the visual appeal.

The performances in Pentagram Girl are a standout. Sclar’s portrayal of both the supernatural being and the vulnerable Jenna is a masterclass in character differentiation. Hope’s portrayal of the determined and clever Jordan is equally impressive. Roger Nasser’s compelling performance as Bertram, a family friend, adds depth to the narrative. Each actor brings their A-game, making the movie a true delight to watch. Their skill and dedication to their roles are truly commendable.

Pentagram Girl is a masterfully crafted short, delivering a perfect blend of creepiness, drama, and shocks. Enk’s direction is spot-on, and the cast’s performances are top-notch. But what truly sets this apart is its conclusion. It’s not just good, it’s brilliant beyond compare, leaving you with a sense of awe and satisfaction.
