(This is Sacrum short film review, which is a weird alien CGI short film that was published on Vimeo)

Sometimes a short film comes along that explains nothing and shows unexpected things that you may never understand till the end. Sacrum is one of these offerings that seems to aim to be indescribable and yet is a visual delight itself.

It is directed and acted by Rofl Lindblom and with his dog Scott. This review will be shorter than usual due to its uncommon genre that is akin to an art film but also a bit beyond that. Without further ado, let’s delve into the Sacrum short film review below!

 

Premise

A man and a dog in the forest. And he is trying to snipe an alien ship? Well, what could this all mean?

Story

There seems to be no story at all and things are quite weird as well. So there is a man (Russian?) who tries to shoot a black thingy in the sky, which I presumed to be an alien spaceship. But that’s it for the whole clip. So I can’t say much in this department. Other than the film focuses more on the weirdness and the CGI itself.

And then there’s a weird flashback to the beach playing sandcastle during the sunset, like there’s almost no link between them LOL.

 

Pacing/Visual

Pacing is alright, and is pretty decent. You will not get bored because things are so weird and random that you will keep anticipating a new thing to happen. But this is the part where you will be disappointed at the end as it ends quite abruptly.

Some great visual

 

Visual wise though, this film is great on its own. The production value seems quite high and the CGI is actually pretty well done. There are no spectacular visual effect that is akin to Hollywood standard, but what it has fits the overall visual style and scope. So this part gets a brownie point from me.

 

Characters

Sniping the alien ship seems plausible now with earphone

 

There are only 2 characters: the man and his dog. First of all, the dog does nothing and seems to only accompany the man there. While for the man, he seems to be a Russian soldier who aims to snipe an alien ship. Weirdly, he is not surprised or shocked by its existence. Rather, he seems calm enough to listen to his music while sniping it.

So yeah, it’s weird and weirder. Definitely a very different short film that is between a proper drama short film and a very artistic one.

Soundtrack

Soundtrack is pretty decent with some choir-like track that somehow is appropriate for the film. I won’t say it’s the best I have heard, but it seems to help to accentuate some of the scenes, either in its awesomeness or in ridiculousness.

It's Okay!
Sacrum is a weird case that is just decent!
With a great visual comes a great weirdness that maybe appreciated by some niche audience. But for those audience, this can be a visual delight itself.
