OMG, I love "The Bet" - totally freaked me out!
26 July 2008 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

OMG, I love "The Bet" - totally freaked me out! This is what a short thriller is all about.

Scary, dramatic, and nail-biting! Aaaaaaagh! I couldn't get it out of my head for days.

Amazing thriller.

The setting...the environment....so dirty and concerning and scary.

The actors are fantastic, they totally communicate the fear and confusion that the director must have been seeking. They seem like unknowns to me? but also seem very talented, very convincing. The directing, the photography, the set-design....all spot-on.

You leave this movie saying, WTF??? in a very good and intriguing way.

When's the next one coming out?!?!?!
