Quirky, fun and even scary if like to be
13 November 2004 | by (Santa Rosa, CA) – See all my reviews

Neil Gaiman is one of the finest writers out there not only today, but ever. He is also one of the nicest people I have ever met.

This is Neil's first foray into the medium of film as a director, ask him to tell you about the first screenplay he wrote if you want to hear another good scary story. This is a great little short film about one of his favorite Artists and how Mr. Bolton 'finds' his inspiration. I can't tell you much more without making the fun of the film less fun. If you like good stories and creative low budget film that only makes the story that much better, this one is for you.

This film premiered at Comic Con International 2003 to absolutely one the best audience responses I have ever experienced and I have experienced many films over the years with excited audiences, but only one, or two with this much energy and enthusiasm. I can't wait for his Death film.
