Live Action Reviews! by Crystal Connor: Callous

Plotline: Shot during a mugging a girl believes she woke up in a hospital, only to realize she is stuck in a coma. She endures the nightmares of existing in the in-between as she fights to wake up from her sinister nightmare.

Who would like it: Fans who appreciate low budget, film school indie films. Foreign films, dream-scapes , surreal films and stories about purgatory. 

High Points: Strong story concept 

Complaints: My only complaint is the English subtitles because everyone in the movie is speaking English. Its clear that English is the actors 2nd or 3rd language but with that being said you can understand them perfectly. I felt that the subtitles took away from the movie.   

Overall: Short entertaining film with a strong story concept that I really enjoyed.

Stars: 3.1

Where I watched it: Review link provided by the director.
