Simple black and white animation but feels more real than real. Hyper dramatic. Tense, stark, and haunting. Like a dark comic book tale in motion. Great voice overs. Great story.

Just what a short film should be.

The genius of this movie is its ability to capture a story in so well a fashion, in such a short span of time, without loosing intensity. Although the final is up to the audience to assume, yet, nothing is actually given away. Also excellent about the story is that it's not just a mere a thriller, it has few pebbles of moral questions thrown at us--about those little or large skeletons we all keep either hidden or inconspicuous in our various sized closets. Four and half star; if I gave five, the writer will be spoiled, and I want him to do better. So 4 stars have to do for now. Thank you.

Wow, the best short animation film I saw in a while! Effectively and beautifully done. The voices and sounds in particular are haunting.

The animation is great, but it is the calm foreboding of the script and music I most liked. The voices, too, were wonderful, particularly the hitchhiker's. Because the ending was obvious nearly from the start, the in-car claims of the hitchhiker weren't as intriguing as they might have been--I would have liked the writers to be a bit more creative in that single aspect.
