Great horror short by Sam Raimi.
27 October 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"Clockwork" is a horror-short film from 1978. It is one of Sam Raimi's earlier works of the late 70s, and runs for 7 minutes.

Basic plot: A lonely woman is being stalked by a serial killer at her home.

As one of Sam Raimi's earlier works, I found this to be pretty great which even has a great ending. Cheryl Guttridge did a great job as the lonely woman, while Scott Spiegel did a good job as the violent serial killer who's going berserk with his knife. And I was impressed by how the director himself managed to make this one as good and realistic as possible, despite this having a running time of 7 minutes.

I just saw this one on YouTube a few minutes before I began writing this review. From what I saw, it seems like it was taken from an old videotape due to the grainy quality of the film itself.

I was pretty happy to have seen this film at least. If you liked Sam Raimi's classical "The Evil Dead", this one is a must-see short movie. My overall rating: A full 10/10.
