Awesome Short
28 May 2006 | by tdumon01See all my reviews

If you like horror, suspense and high quality production, then Husk is a must see. From beginning to end its gripping. Simmons keeps the suspense throughout the entire 27 minutes. It was the official closing film for last year's HollyShorts, Short Film Fest in Hollywood and it received some great reviews from the audience. What's also great about the film is the pacing. You aren't waiting for something to happen and there isn't a dull moment. Brett Simmons is definitely a director to watch and I can't wait to see this as a feature film. The acting is also superb, you may remember Diaz from "Half Baked," and he puts on a great performance in this short. The ending will surprise you.
