An OK attempt but needed to be cleverer and funnier to work
11 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a man receives an email advertising a new way of connecting to the internet, he receives the stylish black Praemus unit to attach to his hard drive. The quick connection is offset by the problems he has with the billing, unexplained screen outages and constant crashing. His attempts to contact the manufacturers only lead to frustrating while the Praemus unit itself starts to take on a more sinister appearance.

This short starts well enough and sets up a nicely comic story that gradually becomes more sinister. It could have been good but instead it loses its way by not being tight enough or clever enough in the delivery. The early stages are interesting but not funny enough, although it does build a good air of mystery. As the film turns a bit darker it doesn't grow like it should because it can't control the mood well enough and stays this sort of sinister/comic mix that doesn't quite work. The concept behind it doesn't come through and the overall impression is one of being disjointed rather than being effective and impacting.

The main actor does quite well but the problem lies with the direction and writing because it is the total delivery where the problems exist. It is a shame because it was interesting earlier on but the more it went on the less it delivered. Overall a good try but one that gradually falls down as it fails to become more than an interesting idea.
