Effective mix of creepy atmosphere and jump scares (SPOILERS)
22 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite the efforts of the other user who left a comment on this title, I knew nothing about this film when I watched it and this is probably the best way to come to it. The film opens with a man reading about the hadron collider online while his wife prepares for a dinner party. Out of the window she sees a young girl standing motionless staring into the woods behind their house; the girl is wearing a red coat just in case you are not already visually clued in to how creepy this is. From here several other odd things occur but I'll let you work them out yourselves.

The film does several things very well. Firstly it sets the atmosphere really well so that you are creeped out and on edge just from small things. On top of this it throws several very creepy moments and one of two very good jump scares – one in particular which sent me backwards in my chair to get away from the screen. I was glad of this because the opening "moving through the woods" shot seemed a bit cheap and obvious but the unnerving atmosphere is the thing that works. It is not all perfect though, the party scene is too close to the end and the conclusion of the film has perhaps too much build up in it. The actors show their limits as well – in particular the guy playing the husband.

Despite this though the atmosphere is unnerving and unsettling while the jump scare moments work very well in this context. I know it is currently being finished as a feature length film, which would be interesting to see how well it works over 90 minutes, but for sure as a short film it is very effective for what it does.
