Superb short film
18 January 2006 | by nervoustensionSee all my reviews

Acting, cinematography and directing are great. The characters are dark but alluring. The story is intriguing and makes me want to know more about the subject of the story. Grave robbing, never thought it could have happened or does happen but after seeing this short, hmmmm...., I think again. Larry Fessenden is great as Arthur Blake. His physicality's and accent are perfect. The scenes are set in a grave yard with lots of mist and fog, giving a creepy effect, which is perfect for the story line. This is definitely a short film worth seeing! I've seen quite a few shorts in my time and usually lighting, sound, props or location is compromised but not in this short film. It's the perfect introduction to a feature. Hope to see this short made into a feature someday.
