Blood in the Snow 2019 Shorts 6: MYSTERY TRACKERS, POLAR TOUR, COPENHAGEN ROAD and THE TRAINEE

MYSTERY TRACKERS
Animated proof of concept for a web series about a ghost hunter with a TV series who discovers that .ghosts are real. This could be something but I'm not sure because the 5 minute episode I was given to review doesn't give us enough to go on as to whether this will work for more than these 5 minutes. What here is good but I'm not sure if it' a series.

POLAR TOUR
Friends go off to tour the Arctic tundra only to have their van break down and a polar bear attack. A good idea that needs to be fleshed out.With no set up and the quick pace (this who film is under 5 minutes) there is no time for suspense to be created. We are just thrown into the terror with no idea who anyone is. I would love to see a longer version of this.

COPENHAGEN ROAD
The story of a motorist in need of help who brings back a long repressed event for a mechanic. Supernatural tinged thriller is a nifty little confection which I can't really discuss lest I spoil it.

TRAINEE
A superhero's vital interrogation of a bad guy goes horribly wrong when the sidekick trainee shows up. Funny for all the right reasons, and a whole lot of wrong ones (some of this is just wrong),  this is exactly the sort of superhero nightmare the comics never show us. A must for any superhero junkie.
