(This is Nine Iron short film review, which is a British short film that was released in Vimeo)

Mystery, suspense and murder look-alike scenes are commonly used scenes in films. But what if you can make use of it to surprise the viewers? Well, Nine Iron is here to give it a go.

It is directed by Dylan Gillah, produced by Sebastian Croucher and stars Andrew Obeney. And produced by Aarthus Cinema UK with sound mixed by Waves Rec Media. Now, let’s get into the Nine Iron short film review below to find out how they will surprise you!

 

Premise

A forensic pathologist is dragging something heavy and cleans up one of the clubs that he has and might use later. What will be the truth behind his actions?

Premise

The premise is laughingly simple. In fact, it is not the main point of this short film in the first place. Dare I say that its simplicity is one of the factors that will deliver the twist in the ending. So, in this sense, this film scores low on the premise side.

the suspense induced from his actions work in its favour

But when it comes to deliver the twist, it executes it fairly well. It makes sure to introduce the character and all of his actions before we realise what have truly happened. So, the suspense induced from his actions work in its favour.

 

Pacing/Visual

Pacing is great, where things do not drag out unnecessarily and is mainly used for suspense and mystery. I also like that it focuses on the slow actions of the character, and does not rush it as well. Overall, this department scores a brownie point from me.

Visual-wise, it has that Hollywood feel to it. The production value does seem high, and many scenes are cinematic in nature like on the silver screen. It looks and feels like a big budget production with its orange teal colour usage. So this is another part where it excels, and is used to trick us too.

 

Character

The character is a guy who looks a bit like someone who could be a murderer. And his actions speak out loud of him being a murderer. Adding on with the way he talks on the phone, it makes him truly feel like a murderer.

And that’s the way this character is utilised, using stereotypes and cliché dialogues to give us a false belief that he is a murderer. The actor does it pretty well too, and is quite convincing with his facial expression and body languages.

Soundtrack

Lastly, the soundtrack is another part where it shines. It uses some stereotypical mystery murder soundtrack that enhances the suspense and increases the mystery. It’s a slow dark melody that permeates through each of the character’s action. And another great point is the foley, they are pretty well done too, which adds to the suspense factor.
