CHILLING VISIONS: 5 STATES OF FEAR premieres tonight on Chiller at 9pm ET, and Twitch has their review in. Get a look at excerpts below and read the full review at Twitch.com.
The Trouble With Dad, by Glenn McQuaid (V/H/S, I Sell The Dead and Stakeland) is a story about an elderly man looks for his dog, Charlie, while his daughter tries to move him out of the house. McQuaid has worked with Larry Fessenden at Glass Eye Pix for a while and that experience shows here. Never underestimate the elderly.
And in The Caregiver, by Graham Reznick (The Sacrament, V/H/S, The Innkeepers and Stakeland), a husband must deal with his conniving wife. All he has to do is put his mind to it. Reznick has also worked extensively with Fessenden at Glass Eye Pix. I am not the biggest Stephen King fan but I could not help but think of him when I was watching this last short. Perhaps if I were a bigger fan I would not say this but somehow the vibe of this short just rang of King.
…5 States of Fear is an anthology that I can assuredly recommend viewing…The work of the directors and their crews is excellent. The risk and the allowance we as viewers make with anthologies is that there is always going to be one or two shorts that do not stand out like the rest. I can confidently say that there is not a weak link in the bunch. All five shorts have their own strengths and highlights.
You have won this round Chiller TV.
