    'It's a good concept that is very well executed by Smith who has a great eye for framing and mood but Spira is particularly memorable for Hephzibah Roe's excellent performance as Laura and Smith's own sound design which is remarkably effective. This is an impressive debut.' - QuietEarth.us

    Director's Note
    This is my directorial debut. Shot on a zero budget in just two days in Dorset, south UK. The aim was to create something from nothing and a gripping and rounded story that takes you on a psychological journey of horror with the main character. By blurring the lines between reality, insanity, and the paranormal, the audience is put in the main characters shoes and taken on a disorientating and disturbing journey.
