I had not heard of Dominic Fera but it seems he is a YouTube filmmaker with a fair youth following. I guess that’s why this (at the time of review) had such a high IMDb rating (9.5) with three gushing reviews – either that or the votes were mainly from friends. I sat ready to dislike Fera's short film foray into the vampire genre…
But you know what, whilst it doesn’t deserve that high a score, it deserves a good review. It turned out to be a professionally put together piece of work, with one or two minor grumbles to be fair, but they were minor and it had less flaws than some notable, high budget professional films.

All in all I was pleasantly surprised by just how enjoyable this short was. The main reason was the performances that delivered the well-constructed dialogue. 7 out of 10.
