Effects over essence
5 April 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"To My Mother and Father" is a British 8-minute horror short film written and directed by Can Evrenol. I think it started nicely with the mask and there was some tension that I enjoyed as the viewer. However, at the end it all gets thrown overboard for most bloody and ridiculous ending you could imagine. Lots of gore too. I don't think the lengthy sex scene worked in the film's favor either. Fairly disappointing overall as I believe this movie had a decent premise and a solid beginning that could have been turned into something good. Sometimes subtlety is a lot better than going all in and this little movie here may have needed a more nuanced approach for sure. I do not recommend the watch. Thumbs down.
