The film tells the story of Heather and James, two actors sent into a claustrophobic backstage area as part of an eccentric director's audition process. Each of them has been given an objective to work out in a scene they will present to the director. James' objective is to scare Heather; hers is to deal with whatever James dishes out. Is James' apparent insanity part of the audition, or is Heather trapped in a room with a seriously unbalanced individual? As tensions mount, they truly begin to get under each others' skin.

I saw this movie at the Route 66 film festival in Springfield Illinois where it won best Thriller. It was very creepy. It seemed to disturb women more than men. There are unforeseen twists that occurred that I won't comment further on. The acting is excellent. The writing toys with the audiences head a bit. Even though it is a short film people I know who saw it were commenting on it even a week after it was screened. Few feature length movies compel people to talk about them for a week. I think Vito Lapicolla is a young director to watch. The entire composition from cinematography to the original scoring of the sound track all come together to bring Sklar's story to life. I think everyone at Route 66 film festival was very impressed by the films production quality.
