A short movie that's not afraid to be scary.
28 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Daughter is a refreshing 12-minute break from the usual modern irony and humor-drenched horror films. It doesn't mistake sadism for suspense, or gore for tension. It knows the real deal. It has a real voice, it's fun (if you like being scared), original and refreshingly twisted. The climax is one that you'll remember for a while.

It's several levels above what you normally see from student work...and if you turn the lights off and give it a chance...it will give you a good, healthy scare.

This movie is also quite noteworthy because Eduardo Rodriguez, the student director...received a three picture movie deal from Miramax based solely(!) on this film. Movie fans should track it down for that reason alone.

8/10...a VERY good score.

PS: Several people have PMed me asking about the plot.

Well, Daughter is about a woman who wakes up, realizes her daughter isn't in bed where she's supposed to be, and goes searching through the house looking for her. There's lots of otherworldly tension, and when the situation is finally revealed, it's a REALLY cool and original payoff.

I'm not one to spoil movies in reviews, but if you want to know exactly what happens, send me a private message and I will tell you.)
