Best and Worst Short Films on Amazon Prime! Week 32 of 2016!


CUANDO NIEVA SOBRE EL HILEO DEL INFIERNO – 8 minute latin scifi horror flick, but is short on horror, and special effects and tells a simple story. Forgettable.

THE SECRET – 9 MINS KIDS AT SCHOOL discussing a secret. Left mo impression. Forgettable.

BEYOND THE BASEMENT DOOR – Tedious, lost interest in finishing it.


MV5BMjQwMTU0Mzk1NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDg1NDIxOTE@._V1_UY268_CR9,0,182,268_AL_RAKE – Ending is a bit abrupt but this is more like it. Very good 14 minute horror film.

FOLLOWER – 4 minv horror film, no new ground… but okay

THE WINDOW- çreepy little 4 minute short film, not worth watching again, but okay 1 time

MV5BMTQ3Mjg5NDMwMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTU3MTk1OTE@._V1_UY268_CR9,0,182,268_AL_THE DWELLER – Alice (Tessa Netting; Disney’s Bunk’d) thinks she has a rodent problem, but it’s much, much worse than that. – good 5 min short film with great ending. Definitely recommended.

JPEGS – Nice use of 2 minutes to tell a complete creepy tale

B4- At 50 minutes this is too short for a feature and too long for a short film, and this film of a group of people stuck in a parking garage… forever . While well acted, this film feels overlong, repetitive, and unsatisfying. Would have been better too long, and too empty, with

GREEN DOT- how compelling could a computer screen be? Well in this 5 minute film the answer is… very. Well done.

GOOD EVENING – Well performed and quite disturbing 6 minutes. Recommended.

lovecraftharbingerbannerHARBINGER(2016) – Gearmark Pictures release some remarkable short films, such as the RAKE, and HARBINGER, directed exquisitely by Alexander Crews, may be their best. Wonderful set design and 1st person perspective in this tale of Ambrosian and Lovecraftian dread. Strongly recommended! My short film of the day!

RENDER – Is an example of Gearmark Pictures releasing an inferior short film. Only 4 mins long, and that is 4 minutes too many.

FATHOM – We are back in winner territory with this strange little Gearmark Pictures release, that takes on the legend of the Slender Man. Good 7min Flick.

Hoax-imageHOAX -Eric Shapiro’s short film HOAX is a solidlyly enrapting 12 minutes. “That’s cause life isn’t real. Only death is.”
