Great setting and eerie premise make for a superb short film!, 1 July 2006
Author: mikepal99 from Windsor, Ontario

This great short film has left me wanting more. I would love to see Rod Serling introduce this film and in turn learn a bit more about the main character and how he feels about his experiences in that small town. This movie is built around an interesting concept which is delivered very effectively as a psychological thriller. The idea of a sparsely populated small town works very well as the setting here and the winter season only adds to the setting and tone of the movie.

I am left to wonder where the lead character comes from and the series of events that lead him to this small town. As stated earlier I would love to see this as a longer feature to get some of these questions answered. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future BrookStreet productions.
