Demeiko Beverly’s short film is a captivating and intriguing exploration of the paranormal that is sure to grab the viewer’s attention. Beverly’s portrayal of Clay, the central character who is convinced that something has taken over his bodily functions, is highly engaging and keeps the viewer enthralled from beginning to end.

The low-budget production value of the film adds to its overall charm, and at times the amateur style of the film-making provides a sense of authenticity to the storyline. As we watch Clay recording himself, eating, sleeping and exercising in the hopes of capturing a moment of uncontrolled body movements on camera, we can feel the mounting tension building up, unsure of what will happen next.
