“There is so much to commend: ...the lighting, framing and composition, when coupled with an keen eye for colour, have resulted in a very high standard production that in no way hints that this is the Director's first short film. The performances are solid, and the edit has a pleasing sense of rhythm.”
“In conclusion, this is a well-executed piece of film that simply needs to tie the theoretical, historical, and cultural elements of this submission within a more contemporary appropriation of the slasher sub-genre.”
“I have no doubt that the student will make a valuable contribution to the industry if he continues to pursue his interest in being a Director.”
