"Whenever you get scared, you close your eyes and you count to ten, and then when you're done counting, you open your eyes and whatever was scaring you... will be gone." A boy fears what could be waiting in the shadows of his closet in the short horror film, Count to Ten. From Lone Suspect Productions, Count to Ten was recently released on BlackBoxTV and we now have the scary short for Daily Dead readers to enjoy.

Press Release -- "(Los Angeles, CA) April 30, 2015 - BlackBoxTV, the number one genre portal on the internet for all things horror, thriller and sci-fi, has released Count to Ten, a short film starring three time Emmy Winner Julie Marie Berman (General Hospital), Bob Clendenin (Cougar Town, Scrubs), and newcomer Jason Bonell.

In Count to Ten, a single mother in a new house tries to reassure her son that fear is only in his mind...but what if she’s wrong?

Vincent Masciale directs from a script written by Robert Perkins and Ryan Scott Self. Count to Ten premiered at the Screamfest Film Festival in Los Angeles last October.

Recently, BlackBoxTV released the series, Fight of the Living Dead, on YouTube. A hybrid of reality and scripted genres, it follows a collection of the biggest YouTube stars such as Joey Graceffa, Jesse and Jeana (PrankvsPrank), Justine Ezarik (iJustine), Meghan Camarena, as they fight their way through a simulated zombie apocalypse. BlackBoxTV is also in post on their first feature, Villisca.

Luke Barnett produced the short with Masciale under the duo’s Lone Suspect banner. Lone Suspect recently created and produced Funny or Die’s IAWTV Award nominated Walking Dead recap series, The Walking Fred, and is in pre-production on Fear, Inc, a feature based on their short of the same name."
