The Backrooms Review

The Backrooms (Found Footage)

What Is It?

The video above is the horror found footage short film The Backrooms by the YouTube channel Kane Pixels.

Here is the description for this video:

September 23, 1996


This is how PopCrush describes this short film:

The Backrooms is about a cameraman who, after tripping and presumably getting knocked unconscious while working on what seems to be an independent film project, wakes up in a bizarre, seemingly inescapable and deserted building.

Confronted with endless corridors, empty rooms and hallways mostly illuminated by sickly yellow corporate lighting, the cameraman wanders aimlessly until he comes across a strange graffitied message on a wall: “Don’t move … Stay still,” he reads aloud.

Suddenly, a horrifying creature making an even more horrifying sound (think: a warped, nightmare version of the ’90s AOL dial-up tone) appears. It begins to stalk the cameraman room by room as he attempts to navigate a maze of hallways, stairs and liminal spaces that seem to lead nowhere.

The Backrooms appears to take place in the early ’90s.

My Thoughts

My brother GC sent this short film to me, and it was a pleasant surprise.

This short film is something that should have been in the latest V/H/S film, and it was better than pretty much everything in the latest V/H/S film.

The visuals, the music, the architecture of the building, et cetera all came together to make a short film that was creepy & surreal.

It was like a building from a dream, and it was like being trapped in a strange maze-like building in a dream.

It is just something about the architecture of this building that is interesting, unsettling, surreal, familiar, and more.

This building reminds me of dreams that I have sometimes where I am in a building or part of a building where creepy paranormal & supernatural things happen.

I would rate this short film a 4 or 4.5 out of 5, and I recommend watching it.

The end,
