Phenomenal!
27 November 2010 | by kate-hill-908-831919See all my reviews

Beautifully filmed with a BRILLIANT twist.

Almost Hitchcock like in style.

Very cleverly done. Roar has the feel of a full length feature movie even though it is only 15 minutes long. A story with many layers. You pick up something new with each viewing.

The acting is superb - a haunting performance from Russell Tovey in particular.

It is set at Christmas - there a is a wonderful ice-skating scene - which makes the tale even more memorable.

Recommended - you will not stop thinking about it for weeks afterwards......!
