HEIR (Review): '...that rare breed of ambitious and thought-provoking spine-chillers"

HEIR - The Final Short From Fatal Pictures - Review:

"... a welcome addition to that rare breed of ambitious and thought-provoking spine-chillers... the short pushes the boundaries in terms of ambition and originality and ends on the perfect note... Robert Nolan puts in a vulnerable and empathic performance as Gordon, clearly caught up in a personal tailspin, whilst Bill Oberst Jr.’s portrayal of Denis is as creepy as they come....

The other protagonist of the short is the special effects wizardry of Ryan Gerard Louagie of The Butcher Shop as he musters up memories of the likes of Cronenberg’s The Fly or the more recent creature feature, Benson and Moorhead’s Spring.... 

Michael Davidson’s cinematography is second to none and, combined with Christopher Guglick's hypnagogic score, if you walked into the short halfway through you’d think this was a full-scale feature-length movie."
