Here in the Dark (2019) LA Short Fest
Well made little thriller looks great, is nicely acted but is hurt by a script that paces events too slowly to reach the destination. The problem with the script is that it doesn’t give us enough to chew on so we are distracted from figuring out how it’s going to play out. If you’ve seen a similar story, you know where this is going. This probably would have worked in half the run time but 25 minutes is simply too long.
July 18th 9:55 pm, Laemmle NoHo (as part of the L.A. SHORTSFEST programme)
