Pulp Movies reviews EMASCULATION http://www.pulpmovies.com/2011/11/emasculation/

"A film that quickly draws you in and effortlessly grips your attention. Jessica Lamdon and Ryan Castro put in performances that are nuanced and insightful and which leave you with the slightly uncomfortable feeling that you’ve been listening in to the conversation at the next table."

Relationships, specifically romantic relationships, are something on which we've all embarked. They are a fundamental part of being human and and the ups ...

Another EMASCULATION review, courtesy of Rogue Cinema! http://www.roguecinema.com/article2945.html

"A dark and subtle comedy that catches its audiences right from the start"

In the years that I have spent writing for Rogue Cinema, I have seen my fair share of short films dealing with relationships. From those that are so sweet that they rot your teeth, to some that can only be described as disturbing, it is one of the more popular subjects to tackle in the world of inde...

The Independent Critic - "Emasculation" Review

EMASCULATION reviewed over at The Independent Critic http://theindependentcritic.com/emasculation

"[The film] is casually paced and reveals itself naturally without ever feeling forced [...] feels claustrophobic and jarring just as life often does in those final, fleeting moments of a burned out relationship"

The Independent Critic offers movie reviews, interviews, film festival coverage, a short film archive and The Compassion Archive by award-winning activist and writer Richard Propes.

WeAreMovieGeeks reviews BAD THINGS...

"[Writer/Director Miles] Trahan shows a greater understanding of film as a thought-provoking art form, and I look forward to seeing his horizons expand into equally riveting subject matter."

Writer/director Miles Trahan (IN DREAMS — 2009 Short Film) delivers BAD THINGS, a seven-minute short drama about two guys dumping a dead body in the woods. Wait… scratch that. This films not just about two guys disposing of a corpse. Sure, thats what actually takes place on screen, but the devil is
