Julian Glover, who plays Grand Maester Pycelle on Game of Thrones, gets creepy in this short film. At a holiday party in a country manor in Edwardian England, Glover's character is challenged to amuse the guests with a parlor game, and promises them a terrible piece of black magic.

Exit, directed by Daniel Zimbler, is actually based on a short story of the same name by British composer Harry Farjeon. It's a tense piece, one that shows off Glover's ability to carry and scene—and the great price of one character's happiness.
