A Touch Of Evil
Interesting short with very nice angles, shot compositions, & use of locations. I really like the shots inside the car of the London Underground. Nice work. The story moved a little slow, & would like to see more anxiety w/ the character to justify his actions (in cinematic terms). W/out being melodramatic, we need to see more of a sense of urgency. Why does he owe the money? What are the consequences--other than the obvious? I like the way you use the newspaper clipping, & the shot of the character holding the gun to wrap up the story. It is a nice twist, & although not original, originally done. The music works well for the most part. Nice job & good luck.

He lived in Chicago in the late nineteenth century; killed many—in every imaginable way. I’ve seen a couple of documentaries on this evil beast and I also remember that he hit his stride during the ‘World’s Fair’. I liked your opening with Holms as a young boy in New Hampshire;... read
A review of THE MAFIA TYPEby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 05/30/2014It is always a challenge for me to deal with anything that has that "mafia" thing label on it. Hence, I was relieved and pleasantly surprised that the film has not much to do with either violence or mafia proper, but is a rather light short comedy. One of the merits of the work is its flow, something not all that common in shorts, in low budget ones in particular - I appreciated... read
