One of the top 5 one shot mother/son incest movies of all time.

Also they did a couple of sneaky Alfred Hitchcock's Rope cuts that they probably thought they got away with ;)

Hahaha, i loved this..
Come to mama..very cool, ruined a bit by bad quality; sound and video. I started of good but was overdone.

Unbelievable! There were no cuts in this fantastic sexy erotic thriller (although jealous 'Religious Folks' may think that there were) and the passion just ripped through the screen. The audience gasped when they finally caught on to the ‘big twist.’ Maybe the V48Hours needs more of this kind of in-your-face excellence, and less 'Moral Pandering.' Amazing! Best of the night!

Very umm interesting story line, not one that most would tackle.
The downfall of the movie would have been production value, felt a little motion sickness from all the movement, having the camera on a dolly would have kept it a little more steady, but understandable with the difficulty of filming in one shot.

I could not stop with one review - this film was so magical that it has to be seen to be believed. No cuts, no pauses, just scandal. The best of 2012 so far.

'Brothers Day' was one of those films that jumps into your heart as never let’s go. Simply put, it was so magical that it has to be seen to be believed. No cuts, no pauses, just scandal. The best of 2012 so far.

Wow... awesome. Fast, high-performance camerawork; killer script and storyline, acting brilliance. Amazing. It's a shame that 'Morally Outraged People' have already attacked this V48 Tour de Force in the forums. Shame, as it's the clear winner of the night... and of the year?

The One Shot movie is a difficult genre, I admit, but I felt the whole movie was a bit pointless beyond the really sick premise.

Well, odd. I saw this team, they seemed like really genuine. Great to see a new, odd film after so much younger stuff and wank-off shorts. Good twist, erotic, nice look and acting.

This was probably the least erotic thing I've ever seen.

One star for getting it in on time and one star for having the balls to go there. One shot is never easy so kudos for that, but between the obvious breaking of the M rating and distasteful content that had my friend leaving the cinema. I think that if you want to do a film that covers topics that are touchy, you need to be very careful and either do it way over the top (so it's a spoof) or do it so well that it's edgy and topical.
This one left me a little sick.
Congratulations for getting it over the finish line on time.

Every year there is one yarn that pushes it to the limit - sure the film got a little shakey (like John Key's handshake) when 'the guests arrived' - but otherwise it was excellent. Loved the off-screen...ending. And the main actress was pure erotic thriller. Great storyline, didn't see the twist coming, but looking back on the clues..."I met him on his birthday!" Some good stuff!

I loved the gasp the audience gave whent he plot twist happened. Hahahaha! And the action and camework at was cool. Tha chick could ride well.

Wow. Funny. Twist. Mama. Erotic Thriller. That guy with beard was funny and it was good to see sex on big screen again.

I had to log on just to review this film. First time reviewer, long time reader. I've been to maybe 20 heats over the last three years where the same response happens constantly. But the gasp when the twist in this thing happened. That was 5 Stars. And as to the other reviewers calling it "sick," shame on you. Stop being bland and get with the programme.
The only negative was the look (in some, not all places); the colour (blue-toned colour correction?) and a little shakeyness of the camera in the middle part (but good elsewhere - it was a single shot film!). Otherwise great.
Loved the opening in everyway and the end: the look, the shot. And loved how the audience became one with the film at the twist. Whether they liked it, or not.

I loved the look - the pace was cool.

Loved the actress - female roles are few and far between. Yes, woman be sexy.

Great twist.

These guys were in my heat last year. Really liked the film this year and last.

But, what was with the colour? Lacked a porfessional feel, and looked a bit cheap.That is why only 4 Stars.

Good use of the single shot camera theme, story and its original nature and the wierdness of the resolution.

This was just like 'Cloverfield,' but I could tell what was happening.

And the monstor was the mother!

I was turned on."Come to Mama!"

This movie was weird. The one-shot was alright.

Im sure this movie has many "self reviews" wow, mature.

stop reviewing yourself

Why all the hate? It was a good short. What's the deal? Ok, so it had a few imperfections but overall the story was the best of the heat and good on them for not serving up the usual bland slop. I feel, that by sharing this subject taboo matter they respected my intelligence as a viewer.

Wow, so many different reviews. I guess it was the subject and the twist. Personally I think it was very well done and extremely watchable. Didn't see the twist but the clues were there. Congratulations for taking on something that others wouldn't. For those that didn't like the subject, get over yourself. It was a very well scripted short film, a few flaws but generally very good especially as it was a one shot film.Well done and good luck.

I don't think it's about the idea, but how well it was executed, and the execution was terrible. But yeah, I guess the team is trying to create a buzz around but it won't catch on, a bad movie remains a bad movie no matter how hard people are trying to make it look like it's "provocative".

There was no eroticism, and it was certainly not a thriller. And one of the actor was probably the worst I've seen in the heat.

Unfortunately, this movie was far from being the best of the night. Bad shots quality, dodgy script...but as long as some people had some fun doing it...

If I could get those 7 minutes of my life back I'd be very happy. Poor acting, hideous storyline, technically weak... lots of room for improvement for next year.
