Storyline

Panacea, named after the Greek goddess of healing. The Agony Man, popping pills and searching for the ultimate remedy to a pain in the neck he has had for over 15 years. Close to total despair a cry for agony is heard and he stumbles into an alternative world where the Alcohologist is not so much a GP as a witch doctor. "The question is ho much is he willing to pay and will it work?" Alchohology - Not your Average cure. Written by Anthony Straeger

I saw this by accident on an independent shorts site. I can't say the photography is amazing, but I can say the acting, the writing and the vibe is really good. No spoiler here - check it out - worth the few minutes.

Conrad Turner has a look and a talent and have no idea why he never got a shot. Martin Hobbs as the Barman is a little wooden, but it kind of works. The director/writer has a way and it would be interesting to see what he would do with a bigger budget. I have seen the Call of the Hunter trailer and am going to risk buying a copy of the DVD - because - I fancy a look.

Check out Biker chick - my type yummy!
