One of the best shorts ever
31 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I don't why only about 50 users have rated it. It's in my opinion better then "A trip to the Moon" which way more people have seen.

This movie features some of the greatest special effects. The story is good. It's actually somewhat creepy and the visuals look good. When it comes to shorts it's in my opinion a must watch.

Now let's go a little more in to depth: The best thing about the movie are the special effects which nicely fit into the movie. They either add something really great to the picture or make the entire picture. All special effects are really well done and none are unnecessary. The special effects really work here. The people who made this movie knew how to make good special effects and how to put them into a movie to make the most out of them. The special effects make the story and thats great. Concerning this it's the Space Odyssey of it's time in some way. I'll highly recommend you to watch this.
