Pests

A blazing tragicomedy with an entertaining blend of eccentricity and horror.
5/5

Review

Sean Cruser‘s comedic horror film, guided by Tyler Beveridge’s clever script, masterfully blends humor and terror in a unique narrative centered around heartbreak and the uncanny. Murphy Martin’s portrayal of the broken-hearted protagonist is both relatable and endearing, capturing the essence of his anguish. Cami Storm as the ex-girlfriend adds depth to the emotional landscape, while Tyler Beveridge, as the pestiside handler, steals the show with his eccentric and captivating performance.

The film’s brilliance lies in its ability to balance chuckles with petrification, exploring themes of loneliness, heartbreak, and the uncertainty of the unknown. The mysterious pest becomes a symbol of the protagonist’s anxieties, enhancing the film’s tragicomic tone. Beveridge’s portrayal adds layers of eccentricity, making his character irresistibly engaging.

Cruser’s direction and the professional cinematography contribute to the film’s cinematic allure, elevating it beyond the typical short horror comedy. The witty dialogue and well-executed scares keep viewers on the edge of their seats, making the film both entertaining and highly engaging.

In summary, this short film is a delightful rollercoaster of emotions, seamlessly blending humor and horror. Its fantastic acting, especially Beveridge’s standout performance, combined with Cruser’s direction and cinematography, make it a must-watch for fans of comedic horror. With its amusing yet terrifying moments, this film is a highly recommended and thoroughly entertaining cinematic experience.
