The end of the world. We’ve seen in depicted by movies and TV shows so many times, and in many different ways. Some of the best creepypasta stories have used the end of the world or life post-apocalypse to explore unnerving corners of the human psyche.
The creators of “The Rising” have taken this approach in their short film.
