Trivia

The antique police cruiser used in the film was on loan from the local police department. After the initial day of shooting with the car, the police department decided that they would not allow any actors or crew to actually drive the vehicle during shooting. As a result, several scenes in the film where the car is moving were achieved, by having the crew-members push the car into frame, while simultaneously driving a separate vehicle in the opposite direction to replicate the car kicking up dust.

inspired story
18 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The atmosphere is the lead virtue of this short horror about an asylum, a teenager and a cop, a place who seems the perfect reflection of deep fears of everyone. Well crafted, proposing tension in same measure than blood, giving realistic portrait of madness and about "60 Florida in the most inspired manner. A film about evil in its different forms . Surprising, smart use of the rules of genre and reminding old good films of same genre.
