    A serial killer. A victim. What more needs to be said?

    I approved of this, though i think the 'basement' is often used in horror/thrillers, maybe a bit too much (this coming from someone who is about to use a basement in their first Movella short, haha).

    Someone earlier commented on how they saw it as the Mother had died, my take on it was a bit different.

    I saw it as the Mother maybe had tried to leave? And the Dad, so in love with her, had kept her in the basement and was maybe torturing her?

    It was interesting 'cos i was reading it from a 'the Dad's a bad guy' angle, maybe even a serial killer, and you had, what i thought were at least, little nods to the child following his father's footsteps. Bullied at school, the incident with the meat, above average intelligect etc.

    I don't know if you'd like to shed some light, or if you'd prefer to keep it to audience speculation, but was that your intention with the story? To give that impression about the father and child?

    When seven year old Henry sneaks into the kitchen late at night, he can't help but notice a strange smell that reminds him of rancid meat. Driven by his desire to prove to his father that he is a man now,...

    Interesting way to look at it but what I think stays in my mind... For now :)
