This is magnificent stuff. In choosing to remove all non-music soundtrack elements, Neglify has managed to nonetheless craft a short that's extremely unsettling and very effective. The narrative thread is clear and quite straightforward to follow in broad strokes, and by focusing on The Man's struggle to understand what's happening around him Neglify we get a better understanding of his confusion and fear.

The music was a *perfect* choice, and Neglify deserves a great deal of credit for the time and effort it must have taken to synchronise so many of the events in the short to suitable cues in the music.

Visually it's great - I don't have any special fondness for grindhouse visuals, but they are neither intrusive nor extreme here and mainly add the feel of an old European horror VHS.

Wonderful, wonderful stuff.
