Storyline

A young couple reluctantly answers their door during a rainstorm and in rushes a soaked, bloodied, and estranged friend who insists that someone is trying to kill him. This triggers a non-stop night that forces all three of them to confront their own darkest secrets as well as an even larger threat that comes knocking. We are all prisoners of our own subjective views and experiences. The majority of Sympathy, Said the Shark is told from the explicit point-of-view of its three main characters. Every time the POV switches there is an overlap of time where we see or hear something that the previous character missed, thus continuously changing the opinion of who's good, who's bad, and what is really going on...

Excellent POV the viewer is immersed into the plot
23 January 2016 | by coolcntrygalSee all my reviews

I seen it & loved it. It is a well done emotionally powerful thriller it was enthralling & eccentrically unique the POVs were perfect & I loved how color & music was used to enhance the emotions of the characters it made you feel what the they were feeling. Zak Bagans' Necrofusion tunes added a powerful element to the film & Zak played his part exceptional. Well done to all involved it was a uniquely striking film with intense vibes awesome accomplishment I will probably watch it several times more. Great work thanks for drawing me in on a fantastic film making ride. It was Thrilling & Well thought out with many plot twists & turns.
