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 can tell immediately this is a 'real' person... read
A review of You Deplete Meby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/20/2013The acting is stellar. I like that one scene carries most of the dialogue into the other shots. I would try and level out the audio on the jump-cuts; but those are very creative and fit well in the story. I would watch for inconsistencies in the continuity - I saw some disappearing booze bottles in the background. I love the bottle turning upside down in the final line and... read
