pretty tense
14 December 2000 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Wow, what an exciting short. I was surprised at the tension of this flick, although it reminded me more than once of "Opus 66" a French horror-short. Anyway, the story is as follows: a power-line repairman gets off of work early and heads home (to his family?). Unfortunately, he gets kidnapped is locked up in the trunk of his own car. The tension rises, but he doesn't seem to be able to free himself.

I'm not going to spoil the rest, but I can tell you that this first film from Jim Gillespie (who later did the neo-slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer), is a pretty good one, making great use of its brisk 18 or so minutes runtime. The mood, dialogue and direction are excellent. Recommended, although the film may be hard to find. How about putting it on the IKWYDLS dvd ? Good fun.
