5/5

Review

Sean Cruser‘s short horror film, written by and starring Tyler Beveridge, is a chilling and twisted take on the Christmas season, exploring the themes of family feuds, betrayal, and vengeance in a delightfully horrifying manner. The narrative centres around two estranged sisters, played by Poonam Basu and Shalini Bathina, who, with their husbands in tow, retreat to the solitude of a remote cabin to work on healing their relationship. However, when a masked snowman-like figure begins to terrorize the family, the already strained relationships between them begin to fracture even further.

The acting in the film is incredible, with all members of the cast delivering nuanced performances that bring their respective characters to life in a way that feels authentic and grounded. The cinematography and production design are both outstanding, helping to create a palpable atmosphere of dread and tension that permeates every moment of the film.

Editing and sound are flawless, delivering the highest quality horror experience possible. As the story builds towards its unforeseen twist and trepidation cliff-hanger ending, audiences will be left on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Sean Cruser‘s short horror film is a must-see addition to the genre, delivering interesting characters, solid writing and top-class cinematography, production design, sound and flawless editing. This expertly crafted horror gem is sure to satisfy horror fans with its cleverly plotted tale of betrayal, jealousy, and retribution. The film is a prime example of what the genre is capable of and is highly recommended to any fan of horror and thriller films alike.
