Sundance 2020 Official Selection.
During a power outage, two strangers tell scary stories. The more Fred and Fanny commit to their tales, the more the stories come to life in the dark of a Catskills cabin. The horrors of reality manifest when Fred confronts his ultimate fear: Fanny may be the better storyteller.

Scare Me stars Aya Cash and Josh Ruben. It’s also written and directed by Ruben.

Fred (Ruben) is a writer who travels to a remote cabin, looking for inspiration for his next story. While out for a walk, he meets a fellow horror writer who has come to the area for the same reason. That night, the power goes out and Franny invites herself over to Fred’s because she’d just been in the middle of a hot streak of writing. Fred feels inferior to the best selling author Franny. Franny challenges Fred to a storytelling contest. As the evening unfolds, we learn more about these two strangers.

I would classify this as a comedy first, with horror elements. I’m fine with that, I don’t think horror has to be completely one thing or the other and frankly, I get sick of blood and guts. I enjoyed the acting a lot in this, Aya Cash especially. This is an anthology of sorts, but not the sort of anthology you might be used to. The characters act out the stories, there are no cutaways to the scenes playing out. All of this happening during a blackout in front of a fireplace really sets the scene.
