This short begins with a man going out to play poker. When he returns,
his wife has been brutally murdered...and his brother-in-law is
screaming at him for not being home. Later, the brother-in-law has
calmed down and no longer blames the husband...but now he wants
revenge. The husband, too, wants to kill the guy who did it. Later,
they learn who was responsible and much of the rest of the film shows
the brutal beating and the blowtorch being lit...just before the junkie
Technically speaking, this is a pretty good film. The acting is good and it had a professional look about this short. However, I really don't think most people would be willing to sit through the film. Sure, it was well made....but also SO violent and So repellent that whatever statement it was trying to make was lost. I had to struggle past the screams, blood and squishing noises to complete the film. Additionally, I thought the husband's reactions to this were very unrealistic.
of all the short films that i've seen, this is possibly the best one out there. The film shows us the effects that we never take time to consider when we wish revenge on someone. Brian is an upcoming writer / producer that is going to show us sides of ourselves that we have never imagined! I am anxiously awaiting other contributions from this young man. To make this kind of impact on his first released short film gives us a glimpse into his future. I recommend this movie to anyone that has ever been jaded by another person or event and wished that they could get their revenge. This may make you think twice. Brian reminds us that there are consequences to our actions!
