Film Review: No Escuro (short film) (2010)


SYNOPSIS: A girl is being haunted by the ghost of an abused child who used to occupy her room. REVIEW: All right – this was interesting. I received an email from a Brazilian writer whose short story had been made into a short film by a college there. She asked me to review her film, which I am happy to do. However, the film is (presumably) in Portuguese and has no subtitles. She assured me … Continue reading

Film Review: The Itch – Short film (2009)


SYNOPSIS: After his girlfriend leaves him, a man has unprotected sex with a prostitute and has to deal with the ensuing infection and grotesque transformation.

I have a strong affinity for restrictive art forms that force an artist (writer, director, actor, etc) to really blossom – things like flash fiction, one-act plays, haiku, sonnets, & the like. “Pin” has … Continue reading

Film Review: Love, Death and Blueberry Pancakes – (short film) (2010)


SYNOPSIS: A contracted killer has been sent to take out the leaders of the local gangs, putting additional strain on their existing relationships. REVIEW: All right – I have a confession to make. I am not necessarily a fan of the urban jungle gang related story line, unless you throw in some sort of supernatural element like vampires or zombies. Honestly, the best part of the whole movie is the opening credits – a love … Continue reading
