Storyline

EMO PILL is an exercise in style. It's an exercise in the surreal. It's a dream. It's a nightmare. It's an illusion. It's reality. Miles sits on his bed, knife in hand, on the verge of suicide. He finds solace, and delusions of a happy home life, in the form of a mysterious pill found on his nightstand. The pill is given to him by an angelic deity identifying himself only as 'The Divine Providence.' He descends into a dream world created by this mysterious pill and experiences the life he wishes he had... Written by Anthony Spadaccini

Excellent Film
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent short film. What great meaning there is for the young man and the fight against his own life. He sees his life in such a bad light. It is amazing how the pill provides a new life that gives him his perception of his life in a much better light. There is great genius behind this film and makes a very powerful statement without saying a word. That is one of the things that makes this short film so great- it says a lot without saying anything at all. Kudso to the entire cast and crew of this film. I am definitely looking forward to seeing others and recommend them to anyone who wants to see a great film with solid meaning behind it.
