Excellent atmospheric short
1 November 2008 | by box_nineSee all my reviews

I saw a poorer-quality version of this at a World Horror Convention, so I was excited to see how the remastered DVD was. Vanek's direction was sound, evoking a foreboding atmosphere and growing uncertainty as to the dividing line between reality and the world of Carcosa and dreams. The dialog did not seem forced or unlikely (though perhaps I would have liked to have seen that the gallery needed a successful show, rather than having a throwaway line to that effect). But equal credit must go to the actors and to Jason Voss' evocative paintings. Dale Snowberger could easily have overplayed Aubrey Scott, but he was sinister without being hammy.
