Review: The Shadow – Episode #4

At the end of Ep. 3, the two cops were trying to escape the house of horrors…

What there wasn’t of a story becomes even less clear in this latest installment of Eric Hunter’s web series. A brand new character emerges from the trunk of a car and we have no idea who he is or how he got in there or why. The characters interact in a way that indicates that they know each other, but the problem is that the audience doesn’t know what their relationship is at all. I stated in reviews of the previous installments that this show seems to be an excuse for Hunter to exercise is movie-making technique, but even that flies completely off the rails in this one, as the dark lighting that was used effectively before here becomes totally impenetrable and confusing. The whole thing feels rushed.

Let’s see if they can pull it together to wrap it up in Episode 5…

Be sure to tune in January 23rd for Episode #5!!
