I saw this short at the Denver film festival just this week. I thought it a very good piece of film work. I particularly enjoyed the cinematography. The director did an excellent job shooting this interesting little gem. Someone else described this as part J-horror and part "The Matrix", and I think that is quite accurate. The first couple of minutes are a creepy, eerie, atmospheric Asian horror film before it breaks into all-out action. There is a "surprise" twist at the end, which might catch some off guard. I knew where it was going, but that didn't diminish the impact at all.
The message is clear: don't judge a book by its cover.
We had a chance to talk with the director who was very humble and quite nice. I wish him luck in the future because he has certainly showed some promise.
