The phantom hour teaser trailer 2016

The Phantom Hour is a 2016 comedy horror short film written and directed by Brian Butler. The film was inspired by German Expressionist films such as Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The official premiere was September 8, 2016 at the Horrible imaginings Film Festival in San Diego, California.



A vampire's deadly plan for his guests is jeopardized when his dimwitted servant ruins their dinner.


Pre-production began in early 2015. The film was shot in Downtown San Diego at Rosewood Five Studios on October 5, 2015. In the days leading up to the shoot, Luke Pensabene, Nick Mansfield and Brian Butler designed and built the interior set of Nikolai's castle.


The film's official world premiere kicked off the second night at Horrible Imaginings on September 8, 2016 at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego's Balboa Park. A Q&A followed the 90 minute short film block with cast members Luke Pensabene and Raye Richards, the director Brian Butler, Daniel N. Butler (visual effects), and other filmmakers in attendance. The film will screen again on February 17, 2017.


Reviewers found the film fun, adding that the campy horror look filled the subgenre nicely. The silly retro feel touched the 1930s classics which brought a nostalgic vibe to the comedy.
