Atmosfear ? Credited Review
I like this type of very short stories built around a classic horror theme. I think this story can become more interesting with more work on both characters and atmosphere. I believe that with a more thoughtful choice of words, the amosphere can be made more interesting. The story needn't be much longer but needs reworking. That takes time and many attempts. At this time the story is still rough and obvious. The moment the evil comes could be delivered less obviously. The character of the girl needs work so that the reader can care more for her. At the moment she witnesses the story and allows us to see it through her eyes but we don't get to actually feel for her.

More work needed, but this story will work.

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 TYPE
    by **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 05/30/2014
    It 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
