I recently watched this short at Hoboken Intl Film Festival.

The film starts off as a drama. I felt like it was going to be a portrayal of a man coping with loss, then of course there is this element of the supernatural. Terrifying? No. Eerie and unsettling? Yes. Absolutely.

I have to say that the performances were top class. It was a real pleasure to watch two seasoned actors sending chills down my spine.

The film is carefully and sensitively constructed. It's all very subtle. Don't expect demonic children to jump out from behind the door. It's the lingering moments of tension that get you.

I'm not sure if the film will be hitting other festivals but if you do see in on the schedule of a festival near you - watch it!
