Excellent!

It is unbelievable that they shot this for just $6000. The film quality and performance by Angus MacLeod would put many main-stream productions to shame. Although I did not know what to think about the films use of partly action with stills prior to seeing it, it was very effective in setting the mood of Poe classic "The Tell-Tale Heart." The film is narrated in Gaelic by Angus MacLeod and the DVD release contains the Gaelic-only version, Gaelic with English subtitles and an English rendition by another actor with Gaelic subtitles. Unfortunately this one does not come close to matching MacLeod's performance in Gaelic, even if you have to read the English subtitles. I can't recommend this highly enough to Gaelic language enthusiasts or fans or Edgar Allan Poe. Full marks for this creep-fest.
