My family and I LOVE this short film! I was so impressed with what was done on such a small budget, but even more impressed with the story line. It was unique, engaging, and chilling.
I am a fan of how the 'creature' was shown in this short. With a small budget, you don't have the resources to build something high quality, and just showing a hint of this 'creature' in the film worked well budget-wise and it left enough to the viewer's imagination. I have seen another short production recently that had a good story line which was destroyed by the cheesiness of the "monster" in the film.
The suspense was right on and saving the 911 phone call for the end was genius! I would definitely recommend watching this short film to others. The accolades won so far are no surprise to me and I have no doubt there are more to come.
Congratulations Zipper! crew on a film well done!
