Director Statement

The film is showcased from the perspective of the Boy who falls into the trap of a Girl who he sees at the Airport. But why is it that only Divyansh from all the other people falls into the Girls trap.

The Film is like a metaphor, when a Spider lays the web, it waits, waits until a vulnerable target comes and falls into the trap. Once trapped, the spider, will not immedaitely feast onto it. But will play around and break the preys confidence of any freedom. Just like Satan holds onto a soul, or any predator does.

There are many under-linings within the film, like the Girl is wearing a Black dress, using numbers like 13 and 8. The bookstore guy who's acting like a Gatekeeper at the Devils Door, who warns you before you enter. The feeling of being at a place where you're not supposed to be. The feeling of paranormal stinging within your body.

So just within a 21mins of the short film, we have tried to tell a story, where the Girl deceives him into a different portal of demonic world or a dream, and what way a person comes out a dream or a nightmare? Big noise or maybe a Slap! But will he get out of it or not is something you shall explore in the end!
