An Effective Use of the Short Film Medium

Heads Are Gonna Roll was a surprisingly effective use of the small-budget, single set short film. As with most Short works it asks the viewer to actively participate in suspended disbelief and engage in the story. I was surprised at how competent it was. Certainly evidence that given more money and opportunity Mr. D'Amato could compete in a more mainstream arena, potentially delivering more than the weak standard fair we have come to expect from modern film-making. I would love to see an adaptation by Mr. D'Amato of Trevanian's novel Incident at Twenty-Mile. This short certainly showed to me that D'Amato is more than capable of delivering a story artistically and compellingly and outside the genre hew seems to have been pigeon-holed into.

This short film is available as an extra feature on the DVD for Mr. D'Amato's film Vampires -vs- Zombies. Heads Are Gonna Roll is the Far superior film. And worth the price of the rental or purchase. The only connection between the two films is that the casts cross over almost identically.

Please remember that Short works are experimental in nature, intended as an opportunity for a filmmaker to spread his wings and branch out. Would that more filmmakers took this opportunity.

PLEASE don't stop experimenting, Mr. D'Amato. I, for one, support you wholeheartedly.

And should you seek a critical audience for your short works, not always easy to find in the present climate, I encourage you to take a look at the Great Lakes Film Association. There is a Great Lakes Film Festival, and a fledgeling annual GLFA Music Video Festival and GLFA Horror Film Festival. I work with them in a limited capacity. And your work, should you desire to submit, would certainly find an audience.

Heads Are Gonna Roll is a fantastic example of the potential of one filmmaker. A calling card. It has its faults. All low budget Short works do. But hopefully it will be noticed and recognized for its merits.
