A late-night rendezvous takes a sinister turn.
4/5

Review

George Flood-Hunt navigates the realms of dark humor in his short film, unraveling a late-night encounter that takes an unexpected and sinister turn. Evan Dejean’s portrayal of Tony and Maxine Jil Hijano’s performance as Juliette add depth to the semi-horror, semi-comical narrative that explores the risky dynamics of casual encounters. The film sheds light on the perils and dangers intertwined with spontaneous liaisons, presenting a cautionary tale.

As Juliette stumbles upon a gun in Tony’s car, initially reaching for condoms, the storyline takes a light-hearted yet manic twist, injecting an element of surprise and humor into the plot. Themes of betrayal weave seamlessly into the narrative, adding layers to the characters and their fleeting connection. Set entirely within the confines of Tony’s car at night, the film boasts respectable cinematography, sound, and post-production, with well-orchestrated lighting enhancing the overall atmosphere.

Despite its brief 2-minute runtime, Flood-Hunt masterfully conveys a compelling message while keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. The French-language dialogue, complemented by English subtitles, contributes to the film’s authenticity. With captivating performances, unexpected plot twists, and flawless execution, this short film successfully blends suspense and humor within the constraints of its concise narrative.
