Short but scary!
21 January 2006 | by sue-leatherSee all my reviews

I watched this on television because of the casting more than anything else - Capaldi always turns in a good performance and I have long enjoyed his work. I also have a great respect for Lawson the actor, but hadn't realised that he also directs (and to a very high standard, if this is anything to go by). However, the film has stayed in my mind long afterwards as one of the most frightening pieces of drama I've ever seen and I often find myself remembering snatches of it - for me, that's a sure sign of quality. Considering how short this film is and the limitations of its few locations, the intensity of emotion and menace conjured up by the unobtrusive directing and understated acting is nothing short of extraordinary. Yes, there are lots of unresolved strands in the story, but life itself is like that, and I found that its very open-endedness only added to my sense of unease. Highly recommended, but not for the faint-hearted!
