A well made film. Good cinematography, acting, editing, wardrobe and blood. lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
Nice opening sequence... I really liked the characterization and wardrobe as well.  
Thank you for the comments Lee and Dan I really appreciate it... for those of you who left a comment earlier, my film was re-set and something happened to have them taken off. I appreciate everyones comments and I would never delete any... thanks again! 
I love the dark room and the high contrast of the cards against the table. Nice  
Nicely shot. Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
Great cinematography and editing. Music also went very well with everything. Great job and good luck! 
Wow, I loved the camera angles and the effects - all fitted together perfectly to make a really great film. This type of plot isn't usually rhe one I go for, but I loved this. You get my vote!  
Nice story. Some continuity problemss though, but surely a nice film. Love the look of it and you have some amazing shots. The music really works for this film. You got my vote. Nice Smoke & Mirrors usage. Please check my film THE VISIT 
Color, color, color! Way to use it in the costumes, drinks, and cards. Also, way to keep the camera close. I struggle with that myself. Knowing that people will watch the film at such a small size it's great that you showed important stuff up close. Especially nice transition between the chips and the guys face towards the beginning. Tension is the only thing I think you could ratchet up more. Engaging intro. Great, great ending. How could the middle have fed off of both of those better? Your opening with the cards does it well, maybe about halfway through the piece you could goose the audience again? Also, I have to say, nice defined characters. Especially the contrast between the smokey man and Willy Wonka. Overall, a cool piece. Cool tone and subject. Nice work.  
awesome film!!!!!!!!please check out "BEE IN THE WEB" and let me know ur reviews!!!!!!! 
I like the way it was shot. Nice makeup effects 
Nice theme and great camera work! Loved the way you used the smoke and how the entire film felt eerie - like an Alice in Wonderland nightmare :) I'd love your feedback on my short if you have a chance - Cry For Me Now! Cheers! 
Some of the great filmmakers say that covering a table with several actors is a pain. Because you have to know when and where to put the camera depending on the storyline and dialogue. The say it's not easy. But I think you covered it quite well. Nice work. Good luck Ryan!!
