Horror short film by Matt Mercer

Feeding Time had a great festival run with 36 screenings at 28 festivals world wide with 9 nominations and 8 awards won.

Upon getting a text from her friend Melanie, Sasha (Stacy Snyder) agrees to fill in for her on a babysitting job. After meeting the eccentric parents of the infant (Graham Skipper and Najarra Townsend), Sasha settles in for the night in the enormous, old craftsman house. At first distracted by her millennial infatuation with her phone (and boyfriend), Sasha is soon drawn into an ever-escalating series of clues that something might not be right with this babysitting situation. When she decides to explore the old dark house and check on the baby, it’s worse than she imagined – she’s in mortal danger.
