An unemployed college grad (Fred Warner) living in a vintage Chicago apartment building agrees to mind his friends' troublesome cat, and after it disappears he learns that the building's hollow walls might house some supernatural force. This locally shot digital short by Anthony Kern is modeled on TV horror anthologies, with similarly clumsy shifts between comedy and suspense. Kern generates a fair amount of tension from the disembodied sounds echoing through the old apartment, but the shock ending is a real groaner. 29 min.
