Trivia

It was a particularly cold day when it came time to film the carnival scene and was physically exhausting for the actors. Even though it was filmed in the south near Birmingham, Alabama, it was freezing. It was shot through the night into the next morning. Temperature was 32 degrees with 10 mph wind gusts. See more »

Goofs

When the car pulls up to the smoky wall and Freddy and Ana are looking up at it, you can see the reflection of sky on the windshield, not the smoky wall. See more »

Quotes

Freddy: In my opinion, there's nothing like a good 'to-be-continued'.

Definitely original . . . and a great story!
26 June 2016 | by charles000See all my reviews

I freely admit, at first going in, I was more than a bit skeptical, but the key here is, you have to stick with it to really appreciate the concept, and the message.

Kudos to a well crafted story, even if it was produced with a very minimal budget. Sometimes, a good film doesn't need huge production extravaganza effects and big name stars to convey a concept that will stick with you, make you remember and perhaps think just a bit.

This is just such an example.

I won't even attempt to explain the story as it unfolds, as that would risk possible unintentional spoilers, so nary a clue here.

I'm not familiar with Jason Parish or Ryan Smith, but they deserve considerable credit for creating so much with so little, and really making it work.

Karolina Wydra's performance was maybe a bit overly expressive, but then again, she is something of a cartoon character come to life as it were, so perhaps that caricature is the perfect match for her part here. OK, that's just a clue . . .

Anyway, even if this is not your usual cup of tea, I'd say give it a watch, you're not likely to regret the time spent.
