Latest reviews

Pros: Use of music and dark creepy visuals. Usual angels to magnify the creepy feeling.
Cons: Too dark in some scenes. Acting could be a bit more worked on in some scenes. Very subtle
Pros: the music was very powerful and gripping. Through this and the visuals I felt the horror vibe. You have also done a good job with camera angels. The camera angels you used are suited for horror and they magnify the tension.

Cons: In some areas the video is too dark so you can’t really see properly. Having a dark scene is good sometimes but your scenes could have been colour corrected with blue or something. This also made it hard to see the text. I had to put my phones brightness all the way to actually see the text. This helped me to understand the ending of suicide but some people wouldn’t have got that.
This is not really a con but it’s something to work on. Even though your acting was very good (professional quality) I felt that in some scenes it was abit too much. This is very subtle though but something I thought I’d point out. Other than that it was a solid short film .
Pros: Some interesting angles, the upside down angle with USB was cool. Great scary musical sound track. Actor was believable, did not overact.
Cons: Use of phone texting was too long and could not really read it. A bit dark in some scenes.
I think you are thinking outside of the box and can see your attempt at a thriller movie. I like the thriller sound music, very effective. The actor was convincing. I could not read what he was texting so I missed that whole information. Some interesting angles, the upside down angle with USB was cool. Great scary musical sound track. Actor was believable, did not overact. It was a bit dark in some scenes. Overall, well-done and keep at it, your next film will progress and be more powerful.

Thank you very much! I am glad you enjoyed the film. Thrillers are definitely the path I’m going down, so this advice is fantastic. The film was very experimental for me and makes me excited to make more!
