Storyline

Sleep-deprived, low on gas and anxious to get home, a pill-popping driver high on caffeine, passes through a wintry small town but he gets distracted for only a second, and as a result, he hits what appears to be a china mannequin. Much to his surprise, the whole town is populated by inanimate mannequins, strangely, however, a set of eyes seems to be glued on his back, watching his every move. Soon, a siren wails, but for whom?

Great setting and eerie premise make for a superb short film!
1 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This great short film has left me wanting more. I would love to see Rod Serling introduce this film and in turn learn a bit more about the main character and how he feels about his experiences in that small town. This movie is built around an interesting concept which is delivered very effectively as a psychological thriller. The idea of a sparsely populated small town works very well as the setting here and the winter season only adds to the setting and tone of the movie.

I am left to wonder where the lead character comes from and the series of events that lead him to this small town. As stated earlier I would love to see this as a longer feature to get some of these questions answered. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future BrookStreet productions.
