Possibly caused by the death of his son, Larry begins to realize that he is becoming extremely sensitive to noise. As he becomes more and more sensitive even noise from things like flies and wind are excruciating. As his hearing begins to affect his sanity Larry struggles to hold on to his job, family, and life.
Chris Bauer (Larry), Laura Margolis (Brenda), Matty Finochio (Tech).
An interesting if somewhat slow moving plot. Character development focused a lot on Larry’s mundane life and seemed to bleed over into the plot. It was as if there was a specific ending in mind but no understanding of how to get there. The biggest problem I had with this one was that it was classified as horror. The movie just wasn’t scary. It was interesting, unusual, somewhat original and somewhat enjoyable. It just wasn’t a horror flick. There wasn’t even blood in the movie until the very end. Overall, the film had 3 minutes of horror by my estimate. For a MOH entry, very disappointing. As a non-horror flick, interesting.
Bauer did a good job in his role as a boring phone center manager. When weird things started happening for him I was happy he would finally have some variety and excitement in his life.
Camera work, sound, dialogue, and sets were all nicely done and of the quality we expect from MOH entries.
Overall, an awful MOH entry. By itself, not a bad psychological thriller with a 3 minute bonus of horror.
Teens and above should be fine with this one. Other than the last 3 minutes, kids 10 and over would be fine watching this one.
