I was either very lucky or most of the shorts produced in 2011 were very good. Like this one, which I would love to see as a full length feature. It has some pretty good ideas and visually it is outstanding. The director was there for a quick Q&A at the Frightfest last summer, but judging from what I can read on IMDb, there hasn't been confirmed any sequel or anything else concerning this movie.

The acting is pretty solid for an action (short), but the stunts, the editing and the effects is were the real money lies (though not literally, if you see the budget they used). And it fully delivers on this premise. If you have a chance to watch it, do so :o)
