Who’s There?

A brief glimpse into the paranormal.
2/5

Review

Elizabeth Shaw’s micro-short, a mere 15-second glimpse into a man’s kitchen/office haunted by a mysterious presence, serves its purpose as a social media clip designed to distract and frighten the audience rather than its protagonist, portrayed by Michael Shaw. The minimalistic production, while showcasing Michael Shaw’s character momentarily distracted from his PC, unfortunately falls short in terms of storytelling depth and cinematic quality.

The low-budget nature of the production limits both the storytelling and the opportunity for the audience to fully engage with the character or the narrative structure. The brevity of the micro-short leaves little room for character development or a nuanced storyline, resulting in a missed opportunity to evoke a genuine sense of fear or intrigue.

While the intent is to startle and captivate, the overall execution lacks the necessary elements to make a lasting impact. A more substantial investment in character development and narrative structure could enhance the film’s effectiveness, transforming it from a fleeting social media clip into a more memorable and immersive short film experience. In its current form, the micro-short may serve as a quick diversion but lacks the depth to leave a lasting impression.
