Did You Know?


The antique police cruiser used in the film was on loan from the local police department. After the initial day of shooting with the car, the police department decided that they would not allow any actors or crew to actually drive the vehicle during shooting. As a result, several scenes in the film where the car is moving were achieved, by having the crew-members push the car into frame, while simultaneously driving a separate vehicle in the opposite direction to replicate the car kicking up dust.

Awesome Film!
6 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Saw this little gem at Shriekfest the other day and all I can say is WOW!! This is an awesome short horror film. It is easily the best short horror film I've seen and probably the best short film I've ever seen. The storyline is fantastic, the acting is great(Mikel does an awesome job as the cop), the direction is engaging, and there is plenty of suspense. It is one of those films that takes you to another world or time period, in this case 60s rural Florida, and gets you to "jump on a character's back" (as all great suspense films do) as he battles his enemies. Once again WOW!! See this film if at all possible, you will not regret it.
