Award-winning Short Die! Sitter! Die! : Rupert Has Arrived Online!



Of the many quality films we caught at Screamfest 2015, one of the more uniquely disturbing and rather cringe-inducing was Lee and Sam Boxleitner’s psychological horror comedy Die! Sitter! Die! : Rupert; and now, at long last, you can watch it too!

Directed by the Boxleitner brothers from a script they penned with Alex Holcomb and having premiered to a packed house at Screamfest (their previous short film Downstairs debuted at the same festival in 2014), the 26-minute Die! Sitter! Die! : Rupert intends to serve as a proof-of-concept video for a future feature anthology.

As for the Rupert short film, which stars Caitlin Reilly, Demille Cole-Heard, and “Baby Rupert” himself (we’re trying to remain relatively spoiler-free here in order to not kill the shocking reveal) and which was produced by the Boxleitners, Holcomb, Matthew Laumann, and Leo Matchett, the flick is scheduled to be the second story in an anthology focusing on a mischievous babysitter. Serving as somewhat of a narrator (according to the feature’s synopsis), the “Sitter” character torments her young charge with terrifying stories, all involving babysitters struggling to survive when pitted against all sorts of evil foes and horrifying situations.

And in Rupert the titular character is indeed evil, in addition to being one of the most deranged we’ve seen in the genre since perhaps Tobe Hooper’s original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, although entirely its own.

Give it a watch below, and for more on Die! Sitter! Die! : Rupert, visit the film on Facebook.

Alison Rothschild thinks she is in for a simple night of babysitting. As the evening goes on, we come to realize that the baby she is caring for isn’t exactly what Alison had in mind. Her easy night turns into a grotesque experience from hell, and all she can do is fight to survive until morning…
