Wonderful Cast. A Great Film.

First Off I Like Tom Frederic As An Actor. He Is Great In Wrong Turn 3 And He Is Also Great In This Short.

Sauna The Dead: A Fairy Tale:

Jacob (Tom Frederic) Prowls Around Squeezing And Sniffing Out A Source Of Comfort While Visiting A Late Night Bathtime Story.

Seconds In, His Cohorts Inside The Sauna Besiege Small Talk. Talks About Selfies And Club Going On's Occur.

Then,

An OUTBREAK!!

And The Film Shows Characteristics Through Survival And Getting Out Alive.

Above All I Like This Film. I'm Glad I Have Given This A Watch.
