"In this super weird film, a man descends into the darkness that is post-production on a horror film. Our main character is a sound designer who typically makes lighter films, but is recruited by a foreign director to work on this dark film that kind of begins blending lines between reality and the film. I personally connected somewhat as I've been editing a horror lately, and sometimes it can really get in your head watching people be stabbed over and over and trying to pick out the 'most realistic' or the shot there the blood falls the right way, and such. Editing in itself is enough to make a person mad, but add the content on top and it can really mess with a person. Anyway, this film is beautifully shot, the pacing is slow and steady, and the sound design is fantastic.

2 out of 5 on the fright-o-meter for unnerving sounds and unsettling atmosphere."
