Reviews & feedback

  • "It's a really difficult task to achieve genuine suspense and originality with a short, but PIROUETTE nailed it! The sound design is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see what Peter and Glenn do next!"

    ★★★★

    I will never not want to see horror movies or shorts about creepy boxes with symbols. This really needs to be given a feature length film and giant practical effects budget because this story would be awesome on the big screen! I want more!
