  • Salvatore



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Salvatore is a clean revenge short that leaves the viewer satisfied.

    There's not a lot to unwind in most revenge shorts, and this one's no different. This short doesn't force the viewer to imagine the motivations behind the revenge, which can't be said for all revenge shorts.

    The Addiction


    The Addiction is one of the more thoughtful films about vampirism available today.

    While the film is incredibly thoughtful, with loads of subtext at every corner, it borders, and sometimes crosses into, pretention. There are times where the narration is attempting to add subtext, but it's so heavy-handed that the film loses sight of the fact it's a horror film. I'd argue it's thought piece first and horror film second, honestly. Maybe that makes it even more frightening.
