Awesome short film
12 June 2007 | by (Omena, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Waterfront Film Festival in Saugatuck, Michigan and it was probably my favorite short of the festival.

This short was awesome. An old woman lays dying in an eerie hospital holding onto her granddaughter's hand, believing her granddaughter is the one person who can keep her alive. There was some very cool action in the film, and the one legged star in the film was one legged in real life, so it was even more impressive.

The director Paul Hough was at the festival and he was a really nice guy and had some great stories to tell about the making of the film and he gave me some great tips about what to do in the film business after graduation. I can't wait to see more of his work.

I really hope to see this film again. It would be cool if it showed up on the internet in the future. Look out for this one.
