There are multiple terrors lurking in Christopher Alender’s horror short Kinderfänger. The first is telegraphed by the title, which loosely translates to “child snatcher.” The second, as you can see in the thumbnail below, is a ghoulish, flute-playing creature. The third... well, you’re gonna have to watch and see.

Good stuff. Its true that you don’t see what’s coming at the end but very fitting.

The only thing I didn’t like is the pied piper’s look. I think a more real appearance would do better. Its just too cartoonish for the story, imho.
