Really well shot, like the best shot teen film by far this year in terms of framing and focus. Reminded me of the 80s slasher He Knows You’re Alone stylistically, with the puzzle pieces being kind of obvious and yet the slow burning revelation still having good effect. Nice work.


I was helping this team for a good chunk of the weekend (along with the other 7 teams from Newlands!) so I'm biased. Having said that, I do think this is the slickest and most polished school 48HOURS film that I've been a part of (or that I've ever seen come to think of it). The camera people and editors were very stylish and hip in their approaches and I think it really paid off. The dialogue could have been slightly louder a couple of times, otherwise it was technically spot on. The guys were pretty proud of the thing at the end of the weekend (for most of them it was their first venture into short film making). Lots of student talent in the team. A pleasure to be a part of. 5/5


You did some good stuff here team. The dog bark was brilliant as was the startle in the toilet scene - I didn't want to look at that point, so well done for building that kind of tension for the viewer. Good twist at the end, had me fooled about who the killer was. I appreciate that you were going for that out of focus look on many occasions so my only comment would be at it was almost over-done at times, but in the end it didn't matter. You made a damn good film, well done.
