(This is Drip short film review, which is a 2019 short horror film about a boy going for the loo)

Horror has always been the mainstay in any film genre, particularly the short film genre. It’s not particularly hard to make, and can be done in as little budget as possible. And Drip is one of the latest to join in the party.

With a time-length of only 2 mins plus, it has to really be confident of its ability to deliver the creep in that short time. It is directed and edited by Brian Lipko, written and produced by Kyle P. Nolan and Brian Lipko. The main actor is Mason Wells, and is done by Meanwhile Production Company.

The Director of Photography is Jack Nitz, with Assistant Cam by Jessica Lim. The Sound Designer is Matt Cohen. Without further ado, let’s delve into the Drip short film review below to see what hides behind the darkness of its hallway!

 

Premise

When a boy who is trying to go to the toilet by himself finds that the hallway light does not work, he has to depend on a torchlight. But what is hiding behind the darkness?

Premise

It’s just a very short premise of a boy trying to go to the toilet…hopefully without encountering any monsters in the darkness. Well, nothing much to be said here. It’s not an original idea, but it’s executed pretty well here.

I like that not much is shown or told, and it keeps you with suspense right till the end. And the story does not try to do complicated twist too.

Who’s there?

 

Pacing/Cinematography

Pacing is pretty great. It’s neither too fast or slow. With the timeline a little more than two minutes, it moves things fast as it near the end. With this, the suspense is already built at the beginning, which helps to keep us glued to the screen to anticipate the appearance of anything.

It may not be a visual feast, but it works in its favour

Cinematography-wise, it’s pretty legit good. I like how it contains some of the Hollywood colours and cuts, which is some formula that works pretty well over the decades. Visual-wise too is actually pretty decent for a short film. It may not be a visual feast, but it works in its favour. The difference of bright warm room with cold dark hallway serves as a great contrast.

 

Characters

There is only one character and a monster. Noting much to be said, other than the kid is a pretty brave one. He actually takes out a torch to run to the toilet. We can see that he’s pretty cautious too.

Pretty cool scene!

 

As for the monster, nothing much to comment on, other than how it gets there in the first place, which is confusing and almost impossible.

 

Soundtrack

Technically, there’s no soundtrack here. But I have to give praise to the sound design and ambience sound. They are well done and helps to give the creeps as we hear every single movements created by the boy. Pretty creepy I must say when you hear just the ambiance sound and foleys!

Great cinematography

Great sound design
What's bad
A bit too short
The monster should not be possible to appear there but oh well
3.6
Pretty Good!
A decent Very short Horror film!
Drip is indeed like what its title suggests, its timeline akin to a drip of water is very challenging to create a good horror. Would I say it's one of the best? No. But it is pretty decent for that timeline and with a visual to boost!
