Author: cameron mckinlay from United Kingdom

Excellently shot, brilliantly acted in an (appropriately) low key way with a strong script keeping it all together. It draws from the same well as downbeat 70s horror and sci-fi; 'Survivors' especially springs to mind, but it's more than that, it taps into a lot of modern fears. I watched it because of my love of Matthew Holness' 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace', although I knew this wasn't going to be a comedy. I was initially saddened this he wasn't doing more funny stuff, but after watching this and seeing how well he was able to pull off a last-days-of-man-apocalyptic-isolation-and-potential-decline-into- madness type thing, I can see why he wanted to branch out. Someone who can frame shots with such emotional precision shouldn't just be working in the comedy field. Seeing this has really made me excited about what Holness will do next, we could be looking at the birth of the next great British director... and no, he didn't pay me to write this. Honestly, if you can, watch this short film.
