Heartless (2018)

Right: This is a short film still doing the festival circuit, so it's somewhere between a review and a For the Love of Shorts. Hope that clears it up for everyone.


Based on Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". An overlooked associate struggles to complete a corporate presentation as a horrific secret gnaws at her conscience.


Written and directed by Kevin Sluder (Play Violet for Me) this short will grab you and not let go. Starring the unfathomably good Stacy Snyder (Pretty Dudes), all Shelby wants to do is impress at work. Give a presentation. But the "dude bro asshats" in charge, well, dude bro asshat, and you can't really help but side with Shelby.

Snyder does a killer (no pun intended) job as the associate slowly losing her grip - both in flash back and the present. She shines on the screen. Sluder does a great job on the screenplay, as well as some nice directorial choices. All round, a solid job.

This is an exceptionally high value production, with just awesome visuals, and some great performances. The tension is there in aplomb, the horror drips from it, and there's even some lighter, more humorous nods. The supporting cast is fabulous (although Snyder steals every scene). We can't wait to see more from the team - Sunshine Boy Productions.
