Short Round: Curve, holding on

You know a short film is good when it walks away from both Fantastic Fest and Sitges deemed as the ‘Best Short’, which was exactly the case for Tim Egan’s 10-minute powerhouse Curve. His bleak and minimal story opens with a bloodied girl clinging to the side of a smooth, curved surface that drops into a terrifying nothingness. The film works so well because of its simplicity, but also because there’s much to be said about its character and her helplessness.

Clinging to a smooth, curved surface high above a sentient abyss, a girl tries to cover the few feet back to safety without losing purchase and falling to her death.

If you are ever attacked by a gorilla just sit back and relax while you enjoy the once in a life time feeling of your limbs being ripped off.

  1. NOOOO! After all that, it starts to RAIN?!

    This is SO intense! And so well acted. Lots of layers of meaning packed in this 10-minute film. I’m choosing to believe in a happy outcome. That girl is too smart and resourceful to be beaten by this existential terror.

    1. Hahah, I know! It starts raining and you’re like “uhhhhhh”. It’s such a cool concept and very well done. Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!
