Looks promising but all to prove.
29 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This appeared on UK satellite presented by Richard Jobson who interviewed the film's makers and promised that the film was "a cracker" that boded well for the return of UK films of the Gothic Horror persuasion. How I want to agree, but I can't, not 100%, anyway. On the plus side, this is well filmed, looks good technically (at least for a low-budget independent short) and even manages to exude a creepy atmosphere at times. However, the story of fate that is promised is so basic as to not be worth the journey. A man dies or a woman dies. if the wrong one dies then Fate comes to even the balance. It's an idea, not a story. What's more, it is an idea that has been essayed on film and television many times, often really successfully. Therefore, The Reckoning only succeeds as an example of film making potential and fails as a film, short or not. Well done everybody involved, you all deserve a shot a full length features. As for horror film viewers, don't watch this and expect a satisfying story.
