At the heart of this film is a very interesting premise with great potential for a short. Unfortunately, because of bad storytelling and writing, and the introduction of horror film clichés, we are not given a way to approach this idea such that it becomes artful and interesting. Instead we--at least, I, was a little disappointed. I also found myself a little confused that the story limboed between something cliché and something truly original.
The Cinematography, on the other hand, is excellent, being among the best I've seen in short films. I would recommend anyone who is interested enough to read this review to watch the actual film; I just don't recommend that you have high expectations of it.
