FILM REVIEW: “Seven Minutes” A short film by Neill Morris


            While mainstream, big-budget horror films tend to eat up most of our viewing and reviewing time here at Little Blog Of Horrors, we love it when indie and no-budget filmmakers develop something special that gets us excited. Horror and science-fiction have always been fringe entertainment, and the best talent in those genres always seems to rise up from the underground. Filmmaker Neill Morris is an artist to keep an eye on, as his short film, Seven Minutes, clearly shows.

            With a running time clocking in right around the title of the film, Morris and crew manage to pack in eerie atmosphere, an interesting plot, and even a twist ending. The story revolves around a young woman named Anabel who is plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious man who stalks her through her dreamscapes. Waking up after one such nightmare, a seemingly normal walk in the woods leads to revelations about Anabel’s fate and the shocking truth about the man who haunts her dreams.

            Neill Morris, who wrote, directed, edited, filmed, and produced Seven Minutes, managed to pull off in this short film what many filmmakers cannot. With its bleak tone, creepy atmosphere, well-placed music and sound effects, and better-than-average acting, Seven Minutes delivers on being cerebral, interesting, and creepy. Despite having obvious budget restrictions, its quality helps it to rise above many other short horror films made with much more money.

            If you’re a fan of atmospheric horror, you owe it to yourself to take a few (around eight, actually) minutes to watch this short. Neill Morris and his crew will be on our radar, as we at Little Blog Of Horrors certainly enjoyed the Seven Minutes it took for him to give us the creeps! A well-done film and worth every horror fan’s attention!
