|This film was an official selection at the 6th annual International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival in Tempe in 2010. Here's an index to my reviews of 2010 films.|
Opening a film with a scantily clad female butt swaying away from the camera and a guy trying to be David Beckham following her into the bedroom is a pretty good way to grab our attention. The answerphone soon tells us that this is Tom and Alexa's house, but while this is Alexa that isn't Tom. We can be sure of that because Tom is the one ringing her, with the news that he's just round the corner and he'll be there in a minute. By the time he arrives, it doesn't take much imagination to work out what's going on at the end of the trail of discarded clothes, so he... well, this short film runs a mere four minutes so I can't really say anything more without spoiling the story and you'll just have to go watch it yourself. As with all shorts this short, there's only a single punchline but it's a good payoff to the neatly built suspense. Someone should write a pop song around the story and turn it into a music video, but only if that punchline stays intact.
