4/5

Review

JP Bradham’s short horror film ventures into the sinister depths of a woman’s uncontrollable online shopping addiction, delivering a suspenseful and thrilling ride for viewers. Georgina Reilly delivers a stellar performance as Tammy, who turns to shopping as a coping mechanism after the loss of her mother, inadvertently falling deeper into a dark obsession.

As the deliveries pile up, Tammy’s husband, Michael, played by Matthew Grondin, becomes increasingly concerned. The performances by both actors are superb, effectively capturing the mounting tension and the deteriorating state of their relationship.

The film’s setting in suburbia adds an eeriness to the narrative, highlighting the seemingly ordinary backdrop against which Tammy’s obsession unfolds. Kasey Orthmann’s cinematography contributes to the highly cinematic feel of the film, capturing both the mundane and the chilling moments with precision. The lighting enhances the atmosphere, while the sound design and editing effectively intensify the suspenseful ambiance.

Throughout the film, a sense of trepidation is masterfully woven into the narrative, keeping viewers on edge as they anticipate what dark turns Tammy’s addiction will take. Additionally, Shaw Jones brings a much-needed touch of eccentricity as the shopping channel host, adding intrigue and depth to the story.

In conclusion, JP Bradham’s short horror film is a suspenseful and captivating exploration of the dangers of addiction and the terrifying consequences it can have on individuals and relationships. With outstanding performances, expert visual elements, and a twist that will leave audiences shocked, this film delivers a thrilling and memorable viewing experience.
