A great short...
20 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. The photography was fantastic, the music stellar, the performance by Scott Hoye was superb, and the Gory feel was gloriously macabre! Great film.

Penta's earlier works are only to be out shadowed by his recent projects such as, The Black Balloon, and the The Werewolf of Pawtucket. Many of Penta's works are black & white narratives and are done with a gentle grace. Easy to watch, and intriguing to the eye and ear. Hopefully soon, he will take on a full-length dialog piece. I anxiously await another Pentaworks film.

This is one triple-threat director to keep an eye on.
