REVIEW WRITTEN BY: TIM NORDSTEDT. SCREENSHOTS

I misshappenly stumbled over this one when I was looking for updates on the upcoming horrormovie Muck, the cover sparked my curiousity and when I read the plot and that the moviemakers wanted it to be a 80s styled creature horror movie I got a little bit excited, I had to see it.

It's not much of a story, a woman named Laverne (Callie Stephens) comes home after a trainingsession and does what the most people that just got home usually do, except for checking the mail. There are no dialogues because she´s the only one in this movie and she doesn't seem to be that kind of person that talks to herself out loudly, the closest thing we get to hear a line is the answeringmachine. After a little bit off this and that Laverne gets into the tub to relax but there is a big nasty surprise that hides in the water.

This is a shortfilm and it's only six minutes long but i found myself smiling during the whole time and it would be really interesting to see what they can do with a fullength movie and a bigger budget.

They succeeded in pretty much everything they wanted to do with this short little treat, it really looked like it was made in the 80s, they even had a retrocoke bottle!, it was more 80s than The House of the Devil but in a completely different more colourfull and a too good camerajob kind of way but it was still more fun to watch.

If you have six minutes to spare and like 80s creature horrormovies then take a look at this one! The company that made The Muck have made a bunch of other short-movies that look more than interesting so I will take time to check them out too.
