The Umbrella Factory

One evening, a traveller knocked upon the door of three brothers. Asking for a place to stay, as he has nowhere else to go, he offers them his magic talisman for payment in exchange for room and board to come in out of the pouring rain. What the brothers learn is that the talisman is capable of granting three wishes. But be careful what you wish for.

The Umbrella Factory is an internationally acclaimed Horror Short Film based on 'The Monkey's Paw' by W.W. Jacobs. It has played in festivals around the world and received a large amount of awards and praise. The film has played internationally throughout the UK, and had premieres in Australia, Serbia, and across the US in over 30 different festivals including the prestigious Napa Valley Film Festival, Gold Coast International Film Festival and San Diego Film Festival.
