Hearing a lot of great stuff about Richard Powells short film Worm you can imagine how pleased I was to be able to check it out and review it. I have been enjoying a number of short horror films recently and have been really impressed at the skill involved in making an entertaining horror film within the confines of 20-30 minutes.
Worm being no exception, gets it right from the get go by immediately grabbing the viewers attention. As soon as I heard the first hateful thought brewing inside the main characters mind I was hooked and was excited to see it through to the end.
The ending certainly leaves you thinking. Just what might happen the next day at school? Those expecting a gory finale might be disappointed but truthfully Worm really didn't need one. This is horror of the thought provoking and psychological kind - and it's done exceptionally well.
