WHAT PEOPLE SAY

- Hypnagogue Reviews


 Credo…the music and sound design warrant mention too, as they are simply terrific in turning-up the fright factor and keeping the audience tense as to the next scare





- The Quiet Earth

7 Deaths… the combination of music and image quickly compels… as this stunning video progresses, we’re treated to scenes of more tenderness; snowscapes and family joy juxtaposed into the devastation; hunger and homelessness amplifying the desperation.
