The Dead Man's Number (2013)
15min · Short, Drama, Mystery · 1 November 2013
In Jake's dream Rex, a long dead friend who died a violent death, shows up in a bar. Rex is a wreck but Jake manages to get Rex to write down his phone number. Waking in a cold sweat at three in the morning Jake remembers the dream and writes down the dead man's number. His squeeze Betty dismisses Jake's dream as 'spooky hooey nonsense' but an air of foreboding arises as Jake leaves for work. The starting point for this movie was an actual dream of writer/director Jackson Hill where he runs into his long dead friend Rex. This black and white film noir thriller was shot in New Orleans and promises to raise the hair on your arm.
