This is a brilliant short film
25 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a brilliant short film. In the short running time there is a lot of implied back story. It reminded Me in certain shots of the Italian Giallo films of the 1970s. The use of red definitely brought to mind Argento. It also has elements of Michael Powell's classic Peeping Tom. Watching it a second time I appreciated everything about the film more, especially Dominique Swain's performance. The cinematography was superb. Writing was excellent. The direction was brilliant. It stands up to comparison with a lot of bigger budget films, such as American Mary (which is one of My favourite films). It is a brilliant example of how to get the most from the short film format. Gina Lee Ronhovde is certainly one to watch and I hope She has every success in the future. Which on this showing she deserves. Well done to everyone involved
