A desperate journey through the Mojave desert unravels a paranormal twist.


Dan Hertzog‘s mystery short film, set against the backdrop of the Mojave desert, immediately ensnares viewers in a web of intrigue and suspense. From the opening scenes, where we learn of a mysterious fatality sets the stage for a gripping narrative, to the eerie journey through the off-the-map town of Domino Springs, Hertzog masterfully crafts an atmosphere of palpable tension and uncertainty.

The chemistry between Larinde and Kennedy is undeniable, anchoring the film with authenticity and emotional depth.

What sets this cinematic marvel apart is Hertzog’s impeccable cinematography, which expertly captures the desolate beauty of the desert landscape and infuses each frame with a sense of foreboding. The production and costume design, evocative of the late 1970s era, further immerse viewers in the eerie atmosphere, adding layers of authenticity to the narrative.
