Trial 22

A high-action horror that unravels the dark corners of human nature.
5/5

Review

‘Trial 22’ is a thrilling short horror film that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. Directed by John Ferrer, this intense tale centers around four friends who must navigate their way through a sinister and treacherous game of self-preservation. Within a confined room, a demonic monster lurks, testing the limits of their loyalty, as they have only five minutes to escape. The film masterfully explores themes of selfishness and betrayal, delving into the dark corners of human nature.

The production design is truly remarkable, transporting viewers into a nightmarish underground compound where tension runs high. The makeup and costume designs are exceptional, adding a visceral layer of fear and unease to the already gripping story. Starring a talented ensemble cast, including Corinna Brown, Felix Garcia Guyer, Graham O’Connor, Isabella Lake, and Maxwell Whitaker, the performances are hauntingly convincing, capturing the desperation and fear of their characters.

The script, penned by Ferrer and Harry Metcalfe, is a work of brilliance, keeping audiences engaged from beginning to end. The cinematography by Charlie Martin is nothing short of amazing, capturing the claustrophobic atmosphere and heightening the scares. The sound design and editing also contribute to the overall tension, creating a seamless and immersive viewing experience.

‘Trial 22’ is a well-crafted short film that thrills and horrifies in equal measure. With its high-action sequences, gore, and a thought-provoking narrative, Ferrer proves himself to be a talented filmmaker. This horror gem is a must-see for fans of the genre, showcasing the talent and creativity of all those involved in its production.
