Film Review: GLASS CABIN (2019) (Short Film)

GLASS CABIN **** USA 2019 Dir: Can Türedi. 15 mins

Glass Cabin is a short film Written & Directed by Can Türedi, this horror/thriller comes in at around 15 minutes.

The film is focused around a young tennis player who suffers with anxiety, played by actress Revell Carpenter. The young woman is isolated in a cabin with more glass windows than you could shake a stick at. The retreat looks out at an idyllic picturesque winter scene, complete with snowy woodland.

When the young woman moves in she is greeted by a very strange man, played by Davíð Már Stefánsson, who comes to the cabin to give her the wi-fi password and shows her that the cabin also has a landline. What followers here is the young woman’s descent into paranoia after having the encounter with the very weird man.

Is the man a psycho killer? Or is her imagination getting the better of her?

Due to this film being short I don’t really want to give any more of this film away, you need to check this film out!

I loved this short film the acting, the shots but most of all the masterclass in sound design, this is a perfection right here. There was one gripe with the film I had though… I wanted this to be longer, or a full feature film!!

I think we are going to see more of director Can Türedi and definitely more of actress Revell Carpenter who was amazing in this!

If you watch one short film this month make it…Glass Cabin!
