Good-hard working effort of young filmmakers on a classic character.
1 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fan film of a beloved classic franchise created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. I won't be negative about the plot, or acting as I know that working within a VERY limited budget you do the best you can. It's a solid short with good cinematography, music, and acting. The high point of this short would be the lighting, and camera work. Myers is shown in shadow most of the time, and the kills are within the tradition of the original film, minimal but with a shred of brutality. The camera is smooth with seemingly no hand-held, and takes advantage of the space in the frame to make Myers look creepy. The music pays heavy homage to Carpenter in terms of musical stings that elevate a sense of tension. PLUS! They got REALLY HOT CHICKS IN THE CAST! If anything my attention is already there because these girls are so cute. In particular the actress who gets killed first is adorable. On the downside, the pacing gets slowed down by shots that I know they worked hard to put together but ultimately make the film feel slightly slow. And the final act movies a little too slow and it's a fake out third act as well. But ultimately the passion was there and the effort was genuine and the girls WERE REALLY HOT!
