15-5-08 short film review.
Within the space of nearly seventeen minutes this new short from up the up and coming Sick Bunny Pictures manages to crank up tension levels incredibly high, which is an incredibly amazing feat in itself. The short has a subdued introduction, with a group of friends watching the house of their neighbors, who they had assumed had gone away. But there appears to be a light on in the house, and things become increasingly more unsettled until a brutal and unexpected ending shakes things up before the credits roll.
In it's short run time, this movie displays an incredible amount of talent, both from the people behind the scenes and from the people in front of the camera. Dialogue flows naturally, and the hushed tones the actors speak in make things all the more ominous.
The ending hits the viewer like a short sharp shock, and just when you think things are going to happen off camera, you get shocked again. I will give absolutely nothing more away about what happens though, because it has to be seen, to be experienced to be believed.
For a debut movie, this shows just how talented the guys at Sick Bunny Pictures are. They blend together the found footage genre and the slasher, but also layer on an insane amount of suspense that makes the viewer squirm in their seat. It works so well, I cannot wait to see what Sick Bunny Pictures have up their sleeves in the future for us! Believe me, these guys want to scare the living hell out of you!
