Storyline

Nathan, a lad in his teens, is driving alone through a winter landscape. His pill bottle is beside him; he pops a few. He's almost out of gas. He reaches a town, and while staring at someone sitting at a bus stop, he runs over someone. He gets out of the car: it seems to be a lifeless mannequin. He goes for help to a café; everyone's a mannequin, and when he looks away, they move their positions. He hears sirens. He runs home. What's he to do; is it a nightmare?

Awesome short
11 May 2014 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I absolutely adored this short. It was one of the first I'd seen (since then I've been watching shorts a lot) and yet it remains one of the best. Probably, for me, the best. I had to go back and watch again, just because I wanted to look for clues. The actor does a very good job, an the ending is just brilliant I thought. You can kind of imagine what is coming, but still, the way it's done is just eerie. The director creates a great sense of tension, and it reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode. Check it out, especially if you like psychological horror. This is absolutely worth watching, and even if you don't like it (although I can't imagine anyone not liking it) it's only 5 minutes of your life.
