Damn. Nail-biting from start to finish, this minimalist short by Tim Egan runs high off a tense performance from the sole person on screen, Laura Jane Turner. The latter plays an unnamed young girl who is stuck on a concrete curve above an unseen (but not unheard) pit of indeterminable horror. But, given her painful-looking position – on her back, one leg bent back on itself, blood-crusted hands desperately but carefully trying to slide herself to safety, it’s pretty clear that she’s better off away from whatever’s down there.
Some might read this as a slow-burn, but I didn’t feel that there was a minute wasted. On my ‘highly recommended’ list.
