Did You Know?


Editor (Maritza Brikisak) was struggling trying to find out a 'clean' hospital background sound for the Hospital scenes of the film. Her cat Charlie, who regularly rests on the computer while she edits, got over excited playing and bit her arm deep enough to send her to the ER where she had ample time to record with her phone the background sounds.

Gripping story, loved it!
2 July 2018 | by theoutsider-04207See all my reviews

The movie had my attention right from the beginning, an impressive indie film. Multi faceted levels unfold as the flash backs give us a peek into the machinations behind the secrets in the closet of skeletons. Performances were excellently evolved. Captivating our senses with a cavalcade of emotions. Surprised to actually feel sadness in a horror flick. Great stuff all around. Two thumbs up. Also to note, the makeup brought chills up my spine. Totally loved the wings, eerie. Kudos to the actors, crew and all behind the scenes peeps. Looking forward to more films.
