Once again, George Retelas makes very clear to us his delight in crisp, well-paced storytelling and intelligent use of whatever tools he has on hand. This remarkably suspenseful vampire short is smart, inventive and surprisingly funny. Among its many good points is the disturbing and hilarious fashion in which Dracula "floats" down the hall -- akin to dreams of flying by swimming in the air, with the distinct flavor of childhood nightmares. I think I know how it was done, but I am not going to bore you with a recap; it must be watched. Several things stand out in this film but I will mention one here: it's four minutes long but quite effectively suspenseful in those four minutes; I did not expect to be so spooked. Cannot wait to see what Retelas & Co. do next.
