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?

Interesting concept
21 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this surreal little short film about a young driver who hits something on the road, then gets out of his car and steps into a world where nothing is as it should be as he gets more and more anxious, building to a climactic ending.

This short film had a very interesting concept and was quite creative. I only wish it was a bit longer, though its length certainly seemed appropriate for the story line and perhaps made it more effective. I like this kind of surreal quality in films and this had a very "Twilight Zone" kind of feel to it, which I don't see as a bad thing at all.

Strange little film which is worth a watch if you get the chance.
