Alfred E. Green
Edward G. Robinson,
While serving in Vietnam, a demolitionist witnesses the brutal torture/rape/murder of a young woman...ultimately, he becomes a serial rapist and killer himself, preferring explosives as his murder weapon of choice.
This is a great example of what film making should be about directors should watch and learn from this terrific short. The suspense and gradual build up of horror is achieved without any gore or slasher element and the subtle symbolism is brilliantly understated. (Has anybody noticed the clock set in stone at five to twelve whilst Trant's own watch stopped when he entered the building.) Did Trant ever have the chance to leave before it was too late or did he ignore the warnings and use up his last minutes unwisely? At the end the viewer is left with a question - is this a gateway to Hell?
If you have quarter of an hour to spare here is wonderful way to spend it.
