Yes, these faeries are not typical of the stories.
16 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

This was a pretty good short, though I do not understand the rather high score as to me it needed a bit more in areas and it needed less in others. The story could use a bit more development, and at the end there is a scene that seems to be trying to be funny while it should have been trying to creep the viewer out further (basically the bumping into the lens). The film follows a young girl who is chasing a butterfly. As she runs away from the picnic her mom and dad are having she suddenly realizes that she sees a fairy. She is at the edge of the woods and a whole bunch come and turn her this way and that as she giggles. Then she goes further into the woods and soon things take a turn to the horrific. Like I said add a bit more before her running into the forest and perhaps set a few things up and take away that odd bit of comedy and you have a better short. The premise is interesting and the atmosphere is good in this film too. It did not creep me out however, as did a couple of other shorts I have watched recently did. Nothing unexpected happened as you knew pretty much how it was going to turn out. Still, overall it was well done and enjoyable.
