I recently saw a private screening of the film in Connecticut. I didn't know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised. Absolutely fantastic concept! It is easily one of the best shorts I've ever seen. I enjoy dark comedies and this movie definitely hit the mark. The production and writing were motion picture quality. The look of the film and the script were excellent. You can tell the people who made this film knew what they were doing, very professional. The special effects and music are also top notch. I would love to see this made into a feature or a series. It's shocking and funny. David Moscow is excellent as Jack and the supporting cast were very good and very well cast, especially Mike Siegel. "Jack the Reaper" is a definite must see!
It's kind of a sad statement on Hollywood these days when I find an independently made short film far funnier than anything I've seen in theaters in a long, time. "Jack the Reaper" was clearly made by people who understand the importance of good acting and just as importantly- good story. Though it's a short film, the story is engaging in a way not a ton of films (short or otherwise) seem to be these days. I liked Jack and wanted to stick with him and continue following his story. To me that says a LOT about a movie. I also have to point out that this film actually LOOKS like a film, with high production values and professional editing, music, etc. Stuff like that makes a difference. So to sum up: this is a really well made, really enjoyable movie. I'd like to see what the people behind this short film could do with an actual feature, because they've made something really excellent here.
