Splendid Psychological Horror Short!
10 January 2017 | by genowhirlSee all my reviews

I personally believe this short film was a very creative take on psychological horror with a very powerful underlying message.

The story is a simple one involving a mother who regrets having had her children. She wants to be happily wed to her husband and be the apple of his eye, but instead she has to compete with her children and often loses to them when it comes to his affections. She is driving down a road aimlessly with her boys when she happens upon a motel where the Innkeeper warns her of the conditions of the water in the only vacant room - room 13. In room 13, she and her boys discover just how "bad" the water is, thus the psychological trip begins.

The acting, lighting, and camera work were all very good in my opinion and set up a proper atmosphere and working together to pull the viewer in. The child actors really played their parts well, the younger representing the purity of innocence and the older representing corruption, or a lack of innocence. The adult actors also do a splendid job at playing their roles convincingly well. The script was good and played out realistically - it never felt corny or cheesy or forced. As for the effects, they took a very creative approach to some familiar and aging shock tactics, which was somewhat revitalizing to the entire experience. The musical score is very fitting, not too loud, produces wonderful atmosphere, and really helps the scenes as they quickly transition, thus helping to make sense of how the actors feel and how the viewers should feel.

Overall, it plays out like a Twilight Zone skit, and somewhat masterfully so I would say when considering it's a short film on a rather low budget. The ending is wonderful and powerful as you see the look of despair on her face when met with the fact that she now has what she wished for, but with a horrible twist.
