Based on an old urban legend?
8 January 2015 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

I usually don't comment on short films, quite frankly because I can't find sufficient things to write about, but this one spooks around in my head since several days now. When I finished watching the barely 12-minute-long "Alone Time", via the website of a Belgian magazine, it hit me that I know the plot from an urban legend that I heard at least 15 to 20 years ago already. It's extremely simplistic and without any notion of violence, but the idea behind it is disturbing and genuinely petrifying. A single and attractive twenty- something New York girl suffers from fatigue and heads straight towards a burn-out. Every morning she steps into a crowded subway train, on her way to another unexciting day at a colorless office. Writer/director Rod Blackhurst marvelously captures this familiar routine. The trains as well as the New York streets are full of people, but nobody speaks a word or even grants a smile to one another. There is one male individual that clearly observes the girl, but they don't talk, and every evening she returns to her lonesome apartment. Subsequently, the girl – Anna – plans a quiet and solitude vacation upstate New York, in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. She enjoys nature, swims in the lake and takes snapshots with a throwaway camera. Back at home, Anna suddenly sees the evidence that she wasn't alone up there in the mountains after all… I certainly don't want to accuse Rod Blackhurst of plagiarism, or anything, but I swear this story must be based on an ancient urban legend that got forgotten over the years. It definitely was a nice re-discovery, especially because the short film is sober and tense, and quite compelling from start to finish. As a viewer, you're ready for something terrible happen. And it does, but not in the way you expect. The Adirondack scenery is breath-taking and unknown (to me, at least) actress Rose Hemingway is a natural beauty.
