Review: Short Film ‘Hazard’ Will Hack at Your Expectations

The best films are those that place archetypes in familiar situations and then upends what is considered normal within the parameters of a genre and rattles the cage with a variable, that the audience, or the players in the film, don’t see coming. The short film Hazard accomplishes just that. Hazard begins like any slasher film would with an unfortunate victim and his hunter, a masked madman wield...[Read More]
