Gory little short
31 May 2002 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A boyfriend and girlfriend are driving through a country road holding hands when the vehicle swerves off the road and crashes. The woman comes to the next day to find her boyfriend has died and rigor mortis has set in – freezing her hand in a vice like grip around hers. As the days pass she weights her options for escape.

This is an example of a short that is a little too long. This short almost lasts too long and has too much of a gap between the action at the start and at the end. The silence is good though because it gives you time to sympathise with the lady's situation. The end is gory and really hard to watch but it's good if you like that.

However you can't help feel that it's too light and perhaps needed more substance to it. It is very much a one trick pony and, even at 10 minutes, manages to have plot holes (the battery goes dead but then is ok again the next day!). However it is quite powerful despite that.

Overall it's worth watching once but is too one dimensional to stand up to repeat viewings.
