Really well shot but there was something big missing. The climax/ending was a little bland too. Didn't really understand the horror element either. A couple of good moments and was an easy watch other than that a bit meh.

I actually really liked this short film, I thought it was going to be a full on movie but when it ended I was like "is that it?" It really is worth a watch, although I would love if my questions throughout the film would have been answered like wtf is going on in the locked door at the back of the room? I guess that's up to the wild imagination. Very good I wouldn't say it's scary but maybe eerie in a sense.

I get where this peice was going, it didnt just spell it out for you, but I got it. made me feel sort of weird about being male, stupid things I may have said and done in high school. this is the effect art should have.

Could have been a lot better, but it made no sense

I’m a 25 year old male and I found this short to be absolutely terrifying. This is honestly something I probably won’t be able to get out of my head for a while. It’s hard to describe the feeling it gave me. It’s a total dystopia hell in which the acting and storyline were very well done. This is one of the most effective pieces I’ve watched on Shutter.
