This started out with half way decent acting of the couple in the car, but I noticed it just got drawn out for a 35 min short. And when they finally have their weird talent show, I was wondering where the hell is the talent and the fact they didn't answer the newcomers question left me wondering why? It was just drawn out, insipid, boring garbage that made NO SENSE. Must be all the people involved in film who gave this such a ridiculously high score. Save yourself the trouble and PASS on this DRECK!

Nice Little 36 mins

This reminded me of Ready or Not, and I loved that movie so this short for me was on point. Although I thought it was a full length film, I guess I should have payed attention. Still, no time was wasted if you enjoy stories with a morbid twist. Then this short will not disappoint!
As Seinfeld might say: It's about nothing!

Utter video jibberish, nonsense! We know frame one that either she will be 'hunted' of someone else will die. Zero talent and less the zero story. Why in the world are they all looking shocked or dazed when they supposedly wanted this to happen? Why did they want it to happen? How do they benefit? How does branding make one a family member when no magic of any kind is shown? You know the drill...says leader. Meaning every year they call the police to announce another suicide. You think the cops might not buy it AGAIN? Calling cops is more inept writing! Why does the leader put gloves on? Since they are counting on suicide not murder all he need do is put the gun on the table next to the knife. What good is a noose? Is he supposed to hold it in one hand and hang himself? In then end an utter waste of time.
It's only 35 minutes long, feeble plot, good acting

Did people not realize this is a short!?

I thought it was awesome. I don't know... I see mixed reviews here, but really liked the slow pacing and put myself in Emma's shoes. I actually watched it twice because there's some small things I didn't pick up like I did the second time ("Don't worry about remembering names, etc.). Definitely wish it was longer, but not holding that against the creators! The ending was brutal (in a good way) and I think if it didn't build to it, it wouldn't have impacted me so hard. Anyway, if you have 36 mins... watch this! I'd love to see the story in a feature though.
And the winner is...
