Thrilling horror short on a cinematic scale.
28 July 2009 | by psiguySee all my reviews

Road to Moloch is perhaps the best short film I've ever seen. It tells the story of three American soldiers in Iraq searching for missing brethren. They find a half-crazy Iraqi who leads them to a cave where they find something more horrifying than anything they could have imagined.

It's a tight, thrilling film that looks and feels like a feature. It's reminiscent of some of Neil Marshall's work and is equally effective on a much smaller budget. Very impressive.

If you enjoy movies like Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Aliens, you'll appreciate this short. By all means seek it out.
