“FAMILIAR” (2012) Review


I don’t normally review short films, but this one is so excellent that I had to share.  FAMILIAR is an amazing flick that you must see to believe.  Writer/director Richard Powell portrays a stunning vision in only 23 minutes, a feat which many  Hollywood directors would probably find difficult to match.

FAMILIAR is shot masterfully and looks professional in every aspect.  The production team does an amazing job with everything, from the sets to the special effects.  Likewise, the acting is superb, with Robert Nolan heading up the film in the lead role.  Nolan’s precision with his portrayal of a man on the verge of madness is one major aspect that makes this film so successful. The special effects in FAMILIAR are the other big winner for me.  There are quite a few make-up effects and they are staggeringly good.  There’s even some choice gore in here, too, which always makes for a good film.”
