Great, great, great short film experience
26 December 2009 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

I was suggested to watch this movie by a friend via internet, she said how funny it is, but when I heard the premise I started thinking that this might be something along the lines of "Epic Movie", boy was I wrong. From the get go I was surprised to see that the movie has a beautiful cinematography, and when it came to special effects I was once again surprised it had really really god FX for such a small film. And the main character was so awesome, Paul Clemens did an outstanding job portraying this troubled person who is chased by a Spoony himself.

I would honestly recommend this movie to anyone who loves fun experiences, and is not a afraid to try something new. And I really really hope that Richard Gale has some big projects after this, I think he has the directing chops to make a lasting impression in Hollywood.
