Karen Gillan Directs and Stars in a Horror Short You Can Watch Right Now for Free


Some people are scared by zombies. Others by psychotic humans, or bad guys with guns.

Karen Gillan clearly fears being a has-been on the convention circuit, and has made a nine-minute short entitled “Conventional” about the horror. I’m sure it’s an exaggeration, but it may not be a stretch to imagine she has met people like this in real life. Possibly while promoting Oculus.

Asked the question, “What does horror mean to you?” her character bares her soul. Horror, to me, is a world in which we would ever forget about her, or she couldn’t get work simply because of not being 20 again.

Ironically, this is the character who really needs a raggedy man and a time machine.
