A tale of morality that magnifies the negative consequences associated with the attainment of items that we are not meant to have.
30 July 2011 | by perezb78See all my reviews

This film is an excellent example of of a short horror story that is unique, taking a new spin on morality regarding what happens when the main character gets what he desires through means that are unconventional. The often dramatic moments are well directed, and the special effects capture the essence of the film depicting gore in an artistic elegance. This creates a visual impact that remains with the viewer well after the picture is finished. This short horror story is a must see for all fans of the genre. It is direct and to the point, as it tells a story that brings forth the essence of morality and the negative consequences that occur when people make decisions that are egocentric and unethical in nature.
