OUR MOVIE REVIEW:
In Tiny Thing, a couple arrives at a picturesque waterfront getaway that promises a dreamy evening in a "castle fit for a king." However, the dream is short lived.
After a near-perfect date night, the idyllic atmosphere takes a dark turn as a relentless buzzing fly starts to ramp up the tension. The pesky fly finds its way into Brian's (Jacob Demonte-Finn) ear, unleashing a series of increasingly desperate attempts to remove it. His girlfriend, Lacy (Britt Harris), tries to help with all manner of home remedies, but nothing seems to work.
The couple’s plans to seek medical help hit a roadblock when their car won’t start, leaving them stranded at the house. With a doctor's visit hours away, panic sets in, exacerbated by Brian's drinking and sparking a series of bitter arguments. It's a "tiny thing" that escalates beyond control. Get it?
Tiny Thing boasts solid performances and skillful direction. As a short film, it may not break new ground, but it’s engaging enough until an absolute wallop of an ending unfolds and elevates the material.
Written and directed by Joshua Giuliano, Tiny Thing is an engaging thriller with a final frame that’s scary good.
