Pretty Dennison Ramalho developing this for a feature, Mr Brown..?
And thanks for the short.

The sequence with the cop being haunted by the boy could be better developed in a longer feature, it moves a bit too fast to develop the atmosphere in my humble opinion, but the torture sequence and the 'dream' segment with the religious fanatics were amazing, strong stuff. Miike would be proud of that spike scene *ouch!*

That was pretty hardcore, strong stuff..

I haven't actually talked to Dennison about his feature plans recently but last time I did the one that looked most likely to go was something with John Carpenter on as a producer.

This is good timing, as we (at Celluloid Screams Horror Festival in the UK) are screening a retrospective of all of Dennison's short films next Saturday, followed by a Q&A in person by the man himself. Thanks to Todd and Matthew Lee for all of the Twitch coverage for our fest so far...

Holy deepest, darkest, levels of hell! That was the most cringe-worthy 25 minutes I've spent in recent memory. Faaantastic!
