Entertaining and diverting short film
23 May 2005 | by Teknofobe70See all my reviews

Several soldiers are sent out to investigate loss of communication with a research outpost, in which the occupants seem to be being killed off one by one by an unseen force ...

First of all, it's worth mentioning that this movie is primarily filmed in the far, snowy reaches of Alaska. And with a location like that, half your work is already done. It doesn't matter how you film it -- it's going to look desolate and wonderful. For an independent filmmaker, it's important to find a great location like this as you can't exactly afford the most elaborate sets, and Martinez exploits this to it's full potential. Out in the snow the soldiers are hunted, stalked and slaughtered by an unseen white-haired beast, which cannot be stopped. And to top it all off, it's actually got a pretty good back-story to it.

Watching this movie you can be assured that you're not in the hands of amateurs, but of people who understand and enjoy what they are doing. The special effects obviously aren't great, but what they have is used very well. While they hardly show the monster, this means that it remains reasonably convincing, and the low-budget "gore" effects are a lot of fun as always. The cast do a pretty good job here ... the performances are mostly serious, although there is a bit of pretty dark comedy thrown in here and there, which makes the whole movie a lot more entertaining than it would be otherwise.

At 22-minutes, this is short independent film-making of a very high order. If the other instalments match up to this one, then that's definitely something for us all to look forward to.
