Unsettling, eerie, all in 5 minutes
9 November 2006 | by hauntedwoodsSee all my reviews

An unsettling standout, this lush, epic-looking short (shot on Super 16mm film in Ireland!) shows what happens when a young girl discovers faeries are not the sweet, gentle beings folklore makes them out to be. It manages to create suspense and suck you in, in under five minutes. A great performance from lead actress Katie Keogh and top-notch visual effects top it off. It's not often we see a short that can suck you in that quickly and make you concerned about a character's fate. A self-aware moment at the end momentarily distracts, but it's required viewing for those who want to tell a complete, eerie story in no time flat.
