Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

Hey there cats n’ creeps, remember when yours cruelly served you up some revoltin’ reviews featurin’ the sinister shorts created by talented filmmaker Creepy Chloe Carroll? Probably not since you lot have a heavy thoughts on your monstrous minds like “Huh?” and “Duh… “, but fear not, because I got the loathsome link right here for ya, so you can catch up…

Anyway, Chloe is back with her latest bite size chunk of the horror biz titled The Housewife, so let me give it my standard substandard treatment and give you my thoughts on the matter!

A picture-perfect housewife (Yana Mulder)… like think something on the Donna Reed tip, ya dig? Anyway, that wife is whippin’ up some din-din and catching static from her daughter Kate (Aaralyn Anderson) and her hubby (Mike Sutton) as to when that meal will be ready to consume!

Eventually young Kate wanders upstairs and finds a strange box which she presents to her mother. Let’s just say what ensues takes everyone’s mind off dinner!

Running an oh-so-brief three minutes, The Housewife makes the most of it’s limited screen time. The set up is simple, relatable, and you can sense the growing annoyance bubbling just under our harried heroine’s flawless facade… and when the sinister shit hits the fan the result seems deserved, as you know this lady has been dealing with this monotony for freakin’ years!

So once again, Chloe Carroll has knocked it out of the putrid park with her latest offering, and I urge all you boils n’ ghouls to get your eerie eyeballs on The Housewife as soon as it’s available!



As a beastly bonus, ol’ Chloe has granted Horror Fuel some exclusive pics from The Housewife to wet your wicked whistles!
