By now the names James Neff and Joseph Dean Martinez and the company Night Walker Cinema shouldn’t be unheard to anyone reading this. We’ve reviewed their 2012 short film 32 and we’ve introduced you to their upcoming feature film The Dinner Guest; now it’s time to look at their premiere offering to the Horrorverse, Seizure.

Made for the Halloween Horror Nights short film contest in 2011, Neff and Martinez were challenged with shooting a film with a runtime of just three minutes. Shot in one day and edited, scored and burned onto DVD all within one week, Seizure focuses on Jordy King who, after years of trying to convince his family that he is not crazy, has thrown himself into isolation with only a phone to keep him connected to the outside world.

Written and directed by James Neff and Joseph Dean Martinez and starring Brian Ardolino as Jordy, this intense little short may not have made it into the top 10 of the Horror Nights contest, but it certainly showed promise for the Night Walker duo who have since gone on to create one of our favourite indie horror shorts, 32. For those who haven’t yet seen it, 32 is a short film about a young woman who visits her dentist after suffering from unsettling nightmares about her teeth falling out only to find that they are.

Score: 333/666
