Very Very Very Very Well Done Masterpiece
15 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the very great pleasure of viewing this film on my Comcast and would have to say it was one of the best short thriller films that I have seen, though the only problem was that we never knew what was behind the red door. However, I pretty sure that this film gave a vague idea of what was truly hidden behind it. Whatever it was, it turned the family into horrid dysfunctional and broken family, almost as if the thing that was behind that door was insanity.

What I did enjoy with this film was the style and the way that the entire film was shot and presented. I really enjoyed the clever work with the camera and the establishing shots the accompanied it. When the door opened and the "thing" that was inside of it leaked and the whole film took a swan dive into insanity, I felt really horrified, especially that family dinner scene and the dead baby. I very much enjoyed the lighting in which the thing was shot in and how high contrast the door was.

The ending was not a surprise, but it was almost sad and disturbing of what happened to this family, however, based on the father's actions and just the way his personality worked, it was easy to see what could have happened. The acting was okay, it wasn't the best but it certainly wasn't the worse. Overall, I believe this story had a strong storyline with many hidden subtexts the worked very well. Accompanied with the story, the technical aspects of this film were outstanding and really well done. It seems like a student film but I would strongly recommend this movie to anybody who loves shorts as well as horror.
