If Willem Serne isn’t directing a multimillion dollar feature in the next five years there is no God. Without a single line of dialogue and only 2 minutes and 33 seconds you get downright unsettled. This film borders on what some would dub as torture porn even though he never lays a hand on her. The suspense comes from the things this obsessive and downright creepy looking bastard is typing in the search bar on Google as his victim lay helpless covered in plastic wrap and he chain smokes. This is beyond any expectation I had and despite the implication of the shots as to how this will end it still makes you wanna see how this began and how it ultimately will end for the creep. The use of light and shadow, music and the subtle sounds involved set the tone perfectly so open a new tab and have your senses tickled for a bit. Trust me it’s worth it. So until next time, hopefully all your films will bring you fright.
