A man and a woman lose their bearings in the English countryside as night falls. To take shelter from a storm that is brewing, they go inside an old manor house that is only apparently uninhabited. Soon they find themselves plunged into a nightmare as they try to get through the night with terrifying, non-human beings surging around them. House of Shells is a non-profit short film inspired by Dylan Dog.
