"The Sky": a "cosmic horror" short about two women watching the world end (like "Melancholia")

The Sky” is a “cosmic horror short” directed by Matt Sears, written by Ryan Grundy, starring Chloe Fox and Charlotte Christoff.

In Britain, a young woman has run away from her erratic mother, and another girlfriend finds her as they watch the sky for an incoming catastrophe, which is apparently the approach of a black hole which will spaghettify them both.

In some ways, the film reminds me of the end of “Melancholia” (Nov. 11, 2011).

A good line in the film is “but she’s your mom.”  That sounds like a 48-hour filmmaking challenge.

A strangelet, by the way, would transform the world in about two seconds.
