Trivia

Due to tight schedules, parts of the film were shot even while the set was being deconstructed off camera. The reveal of the angels in the closet, the overhead shots in the hallway and James' scenes at the table under the window were the last shots of each day, filmed while the rest of the set was dismantled.

OMG, I love "The Bet" - totally freaked me out!
26 July 2008 | by amyrolltideSee all my reviews

OMG, I love "The Bet" - totally freaked me out! This is what a short thriller is all about.

Scary, dramatic, and nail-biting! Aaaaaaagh! I couldn't get it out of my head for days.

Amazing thriller.

The setting...the environment....so dirty and concerning and scary.

The actors are fantastic, they totally communicate the fear and confusion that the director must have been seeking. They seem like unknowns to me? but also seem very talented, very convincing. The directing, the photography, the set-design....all spot-on.

You leave this movie saying, WTF??? in a very good and intriguing way.

When's the next one coming out?!?!?!
