Scary, powerful.. what horror films short or feature should aspire to be
29 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well the initial comment gave some information but is not entirely accurate. "Daughter" was the thesis film of Eduardo Rodriguez while attending FSU. I had the pleasure of first watching it while working with the Palm Beach Film Festival creating dubs of all the entries for the judges to view. I remember rewinding the tape and finding everyone I could to come view it. It truly is a very well written and well executed short film reminiscent of the early Clive Barker. The ending is just... well, if you ever have the opportunity to view it you will see for yourself.

The story behind the Deal with Mirimax (or more accurately Their sister company Dimension run primarily by Bob Weinstein) is this. An entertainment attorney saw the short at a showcase at recommended Edurado to the Weinsteins who then flew him to New York for a meeting. In reality The short alone was not enough to get signed. Eduardo pitched Bob a concept for a feature based on one of his older short titled "Symbiosis". The plot surrounded a small diner who's beautiful waitresses were kept young and vibrant by an entity that lived in a box and was fed unwitting patrons of the restaurant by the women. That lead to a three picture option (not quite the same as a three picture deal)

But as happens so often with the Weinsteins, Bob quickly lost interest and never approved any of Eduardo's scripts for production leaving the filmmaker in limbo, unable to make films with Dimension and unable to take his films elsewhere. Finally he got the job directing the Robert Rodriguez penned "Curandero". A film I have as of yet not seen. Apparently it is not distributed on DVD. However with "Open Grave" in the works my suggestion... keep an eye on this filmmaker
