Landlord: People who get obsessed with the drop tend to end up dead. Which doesn't please me, cause if there's one thing dead men don't do it's drink.

The darker side of beautiful Yorkshire
12 November 2014 | by RolltheClipSee all my reviews

Yorkshire is an unbelievably beautiful place. With its windswept hills and shipwrecked beaches, it's rich with character and history. In his debut in the directors chair; Hinckley's drop, Neil Vidler embraces every opportunity to explore the darker side of what it has to offer.

Steeped in grief following the untimely demise of his wife, Samuel Marston retreats to a small coastal town only to have his stay interfered with by an unpleasant apparition but how long will it be before it consumes him?

One of the many strengths of this short is its complete understanding of real horror as it avoids the trite clichés of jump scares, remaining focused on atmosphere and the unravelling of the story at hand which is strikingly intertwined with extensive shots of Sam's solitary wanderings through the countryside.

With a diverse range of talent both on-screen and behind the camera, Hinckley's Drop will leave a lasting impression on you with its layered narrative and admirable cinematography. Following its premier at the Bram Stoker Film Festival, there are plans to make it available on-demand online and I eagerly await the opportunity to revisit the drop.
