what the title has to do with this short is anyone's guess... good though
13 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Samantha, Lydia, Isabella, and Lisa don't know each other, save for Isabella & Lydia who are experimental lesbian lovers. The only thing they have in common is the mere fact that they'll all be killed by an unknown assailant in this experimental mostly narrated 6 and a half minute short film. On a whole, I found it slightly more interesting and very much more accessible than co-writer/ director Adam Wingard's previous short film "the Girlfriend". Also the twist ending is pretty good.

This short film can be found as an extra on the DVD of "Home Sick"

My Grade: B-
