Wonderfully comic and tragic!
1 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Death in Charge marks yet another milestone for Writer/Directrix Devi Snively. I was privileged to meet Devi both at Burbank Int. Film Festival as well as London Sci-Fi. She very kindly gave me a copy of the film as I had posted my own film to her. Anyways moving swiftly on ...

Death in Charge is a bleakly comic and rather tragic film. It follows the Grim Reaper who has inadvertently been drawn into looking after a young child for the evening, co-incidentally after bumping off the babysitter first. This opening forms the basis of the plot and the resulting humour of the film.

Production values for the film are flawless. It looks hyper real in places, with judicious use of bright pastel colours and very hard to spot CG effects. In addition to this, a common fault I see with most short films is not present here ... bad sound. Effects are well done and use of music is well tailored to the scenes.

I can't really comment more without spoiling the film. Devi's own website (I think) has details of where it's playing next. I highly recommend you go see it! It's certainly one of the few films i've ever asked for a copy of!

Bravo Devi! I hope someone gives you some money for a feature soon!
