FEAR HORIZON (a.k.a. The Vault – Episode 1 ‘Survivor’) *** Canada 2018 Dir: Sara Martins. 9 mins
This is the first episode of an Ontario-shot web series created by Sara Martins and David Aliry. We’re in familiar post-apocalyptic territory, though the location filming gives it a particularly atmospheric, snowbound visual aesthetic as a military operation stumbles across an abandoned installation in the middle of nowhere that’s host to a fellow, terrified survivor of this evocation of Nuclear winter in the year 2025. It’s a slick production, well-acted, nicely shot by Tyson Burger and with a pounding original score. There’s enough to make you watch the next episodes.
