Spider is an imaginative short film, written, directed and performed by Nash Edgerton of Blue-Tongue Films. Personally, I found myself immediately intrigued by this film and its use of a moody and natural cinematography. The way Nash develops the plot, although somewhat drawn-out at moments, creates a unique relation with the viewer that is almost necessary for the scenes concluding the film. The ending is bizarre and grim in its nature, but what’s shocking is Nash’s ability to create a sense of amusement out of it. In an attempt to not divulge too much of a spoiler, I will leave you with the film’s tagline:
“Jack and Jill are always hurting each others feelings.
But like Mum said, Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye.”
