2 of 5 stars.
Through dodgy means, a man acquires a short unfinished film by a favorite director, murdered before a feature could be made of the idea. The man watches the uncanny VHS film that seems to almost show himself watching and reacting to something on a television screen in a living room not unlike his. In the film, a monster glides into view . . .
There are few mediums that this vignette would truly shine in, and print is not one of them. This tale would be appropriate fodder for an episode of Tales from the Crypt, or The Twilight Zone. Potentially, it’d work as a Korean style horror film. It doesn’t translate with the appropriate uncanniness here, unfortunately.
