Title: Scream For Me
Director: Cristopher Alan Broadstone
Country: United States
Reviewer: C Dempsey
it possible for a film to go 0 to 60 psychotic in a tenth of a
second? You bet it is. Is it possible for that intensity to
continuously climb to a point of extreme psychosis when the credits
roll? It sure is and it has been done.
”Scream For Me” was
the second short film by Christopher Alan Broadstone I watched. The
film followed “My Skin!” and to be honest, I was thoroughly impressed
with “My Skin!” so I was expected something more in the same type of
supernatural genre….boy was I wrong. “Scream For Me” shows that
Broadstone has a head full of ideas, a head full of fresh ideas.
Right out of the gate the insanity starts when we find a man choking
the life out of his victim while reliving his troubled childhood.
These lines are quite disturbing, but enjoyable in that creepy
way. But wait that’s nothing! The creep factor is going to be
turned up, and up and up.
Eventually the last breathe leaves the
body and then the killer meets another killer. The fun disgust of
torture starts now. It’s the traditional fable of there’s always
someone out there worse than you are, no matter how bad you think you
are. The first killer in this story finds out the hard way, the
really hard way. I don’t want to ruin the surprises this gem has
in store for the viewer, but I want to get across how intense this
short film is. For any intensity junky who likes grindhouse or
exploitation movies, you have to pick this up. The dialogue is
there, the psycho-billy redneck, is there, the shots are there, the
violence (of course) is there, the music is there…everything that
makes for a great horror film is here. I say give this man a
budget and let’s find out what he can do!
This film is part of a short film collection DVD. Do yourself a favor and check it out over at Black Cab Productions.
