Storyline

Up on a bare moonlit hilltop, Nigel, a fiery yet elegant composer seeks redemption in the intangible notes, immersed in his music. Inevitably, before such an enchanting mistress, his loving seamstress wife Karen is nothing but a distraction, and after one rejection too many, Karen hurt and blinded with jealousy, will inadvertently tie her husband with a fiendish black spell. Now, if she can't have him, no one will. But the restless and everlasting spectres of the departed are always close, listening. Written by Nick Riganas

New, but old
11 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

If my nephew were about to see it (I think he's too young for it, being just 12), he would ask me "How old is that?". He would think this movie is like 70 or 80 years old. That's what the movie feels like and that's what it tries to achieve. With no spoken dialog, it does feel like it's from another era ...

As you can see by my vote, I do think that it works and achieves it's goal. The story might not be something new, but the art, the direction, the lighting and the weirdness of the whole thing, will leave you wanting to see more. If it actually would work as a feature length movie? That's a whole other thing. It might, but it's better than it is how it is portrayed here. A wonderful short movie, with music and a creepy little story ...
