Sick and twisted...and I really enjoyed it!
18 April 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Some who watch this film might think that they've seen some of the ideas in ROOM TO BREATHE before. Sure, there are aspects of the film that are reminiscent of Poe's "Cask of Amontillado" and I could also see parallels with such films as Charles Laughton's THE SUSPECT. However, how these somewhat familiar themes were combined was brilliant--creating a truly original and rather horrifying film that actually might make you laugh.

The film begins with mild-mannered Richard working around the house as his shrewish wife screams and screams for him. Very quickly you grow to hate Marilyn and hope and pray that something happens to shut her up...permanently! At the same time, Richard starts getting phone calls from his brother warning him not to mix his medicine with his wife's--it could be fatal! However, where the film goes and how Richard finally gets some peace and quiet is something you really can't anticipate.

Overall, a very entertaining and sick film--but not one so sick or twisted that I can't recommend it. In fact, by the time all is said and done, you'll be rooting for poor Richard!! Well done all around--with terrific acting by the two leads as well as kudos for first-time film maker Steven Leslie Johnson for making this short film.
