Interesting concept, 21 November 2008
Author: TheFiendsThatPlagueThee from United States

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.
