Love Is A Many Splendid Thing...
2 October 2018 | by faustifilmsSee all my reviews

Jax in Love is an engaging, creepy tale set on the desert backroads of the US. Not an unfamiliar setting for fans of the horror and crime genre but one of the many strengths of Jax in Love is that it takes its audience to an unexpected destination. Director and Actor Rakefet Abergel has crafted a tale that is both familiar and strange, with an incredible central performance from Abergel herself. Catch this short film if you can. Recommended.
