Very short horror type story.

The Reckoning starts in a restaurant where Rachel & her boyfriend David are enjoying a meal, enjoying it that is until they have a row & Rachel storms out. Outside David saves Rachel from being hit by a car but at the expense of his own life. Ridden with guilt Rachel visits a medium to contact David's spirit, this is where it becomes strange as some sort of Vampire turns up & changes the past as back at the restaurant the argument still takes place & Rachel storms out but David's credit card is refused which leaves him stuck behind for a crucial few minutes as Rachel is hit by the car this time around.

This British production was written, produced & directed by Chris Barfoot & makes little sense & has very little time to either as it only lasts for a mere 15 or so minutes. It's not a bad watch as it won't take too much of your life up & is well made, has a fairly good wraparound climax & passes the time harmlessly enough. There are one or two nice shots especially when the Vampire thing in the church type setting complete with shafts of blue light & candles flickering. There is no gore or violence. I'm not too sure what else I can say about it expect that it apparently cost £60,000 & I wouldn't be surprised if it had lottery funding. There isn't much else I can say, if you can find a copy for free then give it a go, it's only 15 minutes after all...
