Excellent Short Film
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at Fantasia last week and it was absolutely terrific. I think the whole audience loved it, and people were cringing a lot. One girl even got up and left the theater and didn't come back until the film was over. Not because she didn't like it, but because it scared her too much. The acting was really good, especially the film critic. It's not often you see genuine terror in films, especially shorts films, but this was very believable and exciting. There is a scene with a paper clip which really stands out, and every day in my office I tell people to beware the paper clip. Camera angles, music and everything was good. Overall I would certainly recommend this film and hope at some point it comes out on DVD somewhere.
