Okay that was different and bizarre, but not without flaws.
12 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I just happened to see this as I was looking through the horror shorts here at IMDb. I thought I would would give it a look see and I have to say I had mixed reactions to this film. It was interesting and I had no idea where it was going after the tub scene. It also was a bit to strange and the ending had me wondering what just happened. There really is no satisfying conclusion, but a film this vague usually is going to end, well vaguely. The story focuses on a woman who starts pulling what appears to be a hair from the sink in her kitchen. Well it turns out that at the end of this hair is a strange thing that she immediately throws in the garbage. She then for some reason puts it in the bathtub and turns on the water. Why, I can not say. The thing grows and then the movie just becomes one big question mark. I kept expecting her to get attacked by the thing when it was in the bath thus being the conclusion one might expect from a horror short like this and for anybody who has read that Stephen King short about the finger in the drain. That does not happen as the film gets stranger. People say it is about loneliness, but the main problem with that is that there is nothing to indicate this woman is indeed lonely until she has that scene in the bed. Like I said, weird and strange. Kept me interested and guessing and the music is haunting and nicely understated, but I do not know the conclusion and parts of the film needed more work or back story.
