Hidden Daylight-short-film-2016

SYNOPSIS:

When his girlfriend is abducted by a sadistic killer, a distraught businessman seeks answers from a blind psychic who can see through the eyes of the madman.

REVIEW:

More short films, kiddies! Today we have HIDDEN DAYLIGHT from Man in the Crowd Productions, written by John Rice and directed by Adrienne Lovette.

A desperate man (played by David Rey) is looking for his missing wifen Aurora (Ella Jane New). Aurora was abducted by a serial killer of some sort and no leads have been found to find her. The man decides to visit a blind psychic (played by writer John Rice) who is said to be able to see through the eyes of the killer.

After a shady money exchange at the door, the psychic leads the man into his parlor and the session begins. Can this blind store-front gypsy really see through the eyes of evil? Can he discover the fate of Aurora and help save her before its too late?

I really enjoyed this film. It’s dark all around – the subject matter, the minimal use of lighting – and really pulls the viewer into the moment. The performances by Mr. Rice and Mr. Rey are spot on. The tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife.

There isn’t much else I can say without spoilers, so I’m just gonna say watch this film. I think you’ll dig it.

Using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film 4 psychics.
