Terrific and Terrifying Short!
3 January 2003 | by (Mississippi) – See all my reviews

Excellent "mini" movie with magnificent acting and wonderful cinematography. A woman driving home in the rain learns from the radio that a woman was found dead. She spots an elder, weak-looking woman carrying a large bag and she lets the woman have a ride only because she felt sorry for her and it was raining. The old woman scared her in the car so she faked a flat tire to distract her so she could leave her behind, later noticing she left the large bag in her car. The woman goes to the police to hand the old woman's possessions over to them and discover strange effects inside. A daunting and chilling ending will surely surprise everyone watching this remarkable short film.

A Five Star Story!
