Jason reviews The Timeslip

If commercials were added, The Timeslip would be a perfect length for an episode of the old Twilight Zone TV series. Whether or not writer/directors Richard and Jonathan Chance had that in mind when they made The Timeslip remains to be seen, but that's the best way I can sum this short film up. It's a solid 15-minute tale made on a low budget with a lot of imagination and filmmaking ingenuity. The film's biggest asset is its main character. It's nice to see someone react to a situation believably, doing what it takes to survive under bizarre circumstances. That aspect alone earns it a Good. But it also holds the viewer's attention despite the lack of dialogue and exposition. How can you see The Timeslip? Hopefully we will be able to screen it at Dark Fest 2013!
