keeps you asking what's going to happen
22 May 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a special one to review. it only has 3 actors in it and is played in one set. Not that that is a problem but by doing so you really have to have a good story. It's the director's first attempt to make a flick and by doing so he even made it longer than a normal flick. It clocks in at 105 minutes. I found this one at a convention just after seeing the other flick with the same story, The Disappearance Of Alice Greed. Alice had his plot changes that made it a great flick. Here we doesn't have that, no surprises but we go deeper into the characters than Alice did. By doing that you really have to take a lot of talking. It's only in the last reel that things go wrong and the flick becomes bloody and messy. It wasn't that bad but if Andrew Moorman could made it a bit shorter it would have been really great. Still it's one to see if you are in the mood for a lot of talking. If you watch it you want to know what's going to happen next. I admit, i had sympathy
