Film Description
A grief-stricken father recites an ABC primer apology to his daughter, and reveals the evil mistakes he has made pursuing a cure for her illness.

My first full-length movie with voice-over narrative.

And for those of you caught the fact that I missed the letter "X"...

I guess "X" stands for X-tra scene, really a bore
The kind that ends up on the cutting room floor

If you enjoy this film, please check out my Christmas film "Tree Farm":

Loved the concept and the execution. Easily one of my favorite films.

Love your voice, love your ponderous and clever imagination. Love how the Z comes to us like that... too much love i guess. Let's just call it L.

Blown away.
I thought when I watched your Short film - the spaceship one - you were a one-timer who'd got lucky with a quick gag. This film has made me regret giving it 5 now. This is a classic. It's awesome. I am now a fan. I thought you weren't gonna make another movie. Boy was I wrong.
This is better than anything in the top 5 for me, hands down, and I hope that the paltry number of reviews you've gotten so far go through the roof.
The biggest problem you're going to have is trying to gain appreciation from an audience demographic that has been raised on Power Rangers Dino Thunder - and are too busy marking each other up to sit up and take notice of somebody better than they are.
This was amazing and it's incredible to think it's your second film. Many filmakers can only hope to be this original - it's way out of the league of most of the movie makers I've seen.
Blown away.

First my wife likes your name(plopphizz).Second ,that's one incredible movie ,sad and unnerving.Great original idea with a great VO.This is one movie where no music was a good idea .Very impressive work!

I couldn't fall asleep, Dragonsage's snoring kept me awake, LOL.

But seriously. To say this is original, would be an understatement. The script must have taken a long time to get right. It was brilliant. You deserve 5 stars just for the time you put in. But I have given you 5 stars because it gripped all the way through, and I liked everything about it.

Excellent dialogue! Nice hollow voice that really fits the narrator. Good editing and nice scene selection keep this feeling fresh two years later. Not a fan of the ending as it felt a bit tacked on but very impressive otherwise.

A is for Amazing, and B is for Beautiful,
the father's hardships,
felt long and dutiful.

He confessed his guilt, and irresponsible acts,
but it is too late,
he won't get his daughter back.

And Excellent film.

It is your scriptwriting which sets this gem apart--far, far apart--from the average TMO horror film. You have taken a story which has been told before in various incarnations (resident evil, et.al.) and elevated it to a new level by your visionary presentation of the story via a child's book. And the ending was sheer genius ("I have no word for the letter 'z'"). I am downloading this and burning it to a CD so that I may re-experience this for years to come. Bravo.

A man leaves a children's primer to try to assuage guilt for what he has done.

Concept - 10 - Brilliant concept, good story, excellent and unique script.
Direction - 7 - It seemed strange that the first man was narrating after he stood up, given that theoretically he was still reading. Some people liked the ending, but actually I thought that it spoiled it a little.
Production - 8 - Good editing, with a few minor continuity issues with people or objects teleporting.
Character - 10 - The the author of the narration was well portrayed through his work. The VO work was full of emotion and fit just right with the story.

Overall, I thought the movie was very well done with a unique narrative style and excellently portrayed character. All the best for the future.

TMO is eating my reviews again. I know I have reviewed this. Well suffice to say I love it. It is the best use of soem well known scenes we all get a little tired of. I'm trying not to give it away here so I hope you know what I'm talking aobut. This story is all about the style and emotion; both of which is has in spades. Nicely done.

It's incredible what a long span of silence makes. This movie is all about using minimalism in sound to great effect, turning melancholy into tragedy into horror, delivering a one-two sucker punch that makes for damn fine viewing. Easily one of my favorites. X-traordinary and X-plosive X-ploration!

I saw this movie some time ago... I think it's about time I send a review ^^ (for it simply deserves it!). Awesome storytelling: Creativity requires not only effort but a risk, and the result is obviously a rewarding film to watch. The VO turned to work well, hand-to-hand with the quality of the lines. Correct use of the sets and the edition. Plain 5 stars, that's all.

Very impressive! I loved the end. For as you can see, it soon will all mend. The zombies were apparent when you arrived at the letter z, I was sad to see it end because that was all that it could be.

Wow...

Love the deadpan delivery of the VO, you can really hear the depression in the voice. The A to Z story arc was great.

I think I'll check out your other films.

Don't know what I can write. You did an amazing job. Original idea, great Plot, perfect VO and a nice last scene. How did you came to this idea? I mean such a movie would never get released in cinema, but here. Just great!!

- Mcgarnagle

What a fantastic piece of work! I think I watched the this whole movie with my jaw hanging open. When I was first told to watch this movie I was very hesitant. I even saw it in the hot picks list a few times and I passed over it. I thought that it was going to be a long a boring film. BOY, WAS I WRONG! The voice over was very monotone (done purposefully, I'm sure.) but somehow there was still a great deal of emotion conveyed to the viewers. You executed this film with so much skill. I personally liked the ending... it was a great way to finish off the whole thing.

Posted on January 25, 2006
- FreddaH

The first words that escaped my mouth after seeing this where A: in Swedish, so I doubt you'd understand them, and B: quite naughty. The reason for why I uttered them was that I had just seen a masterpiece, so great in scope and execution that I never in my wildest imagination had thought I'd see it on TMO. This should have a wider spread than this website. It is truly worthy of a life of it's own. The masterful narration, and the verse were mindblowing. I don't know what else to type here... I just can't believe it.

I really wanted to give this a five, but the zombie plot hole hurts your film.

One of the best movies I've seen on TMO (I should really bookmark all the five stars I have given which I might do soon, lol). Anyway, great storyline and I always believe with a ending as effective as yours will always get top marks! Good use of VOs and sub-title and overall, a great movie to watch!

Posted on January 17, 2006
- Butt-monkey

Wierd but in a good way. Just one thing. You said The people who were infected died. I am guessing the guy in the shack (Dead guy) Was a victim, so why did he become a zombie at the end? Also it DID go on a bit long.
I give you 5 stars cause of the effort you must have put into it. WELL DONE!

This is a tour de force. Congratulations on your achievement! The way the atmosphere is created and built up and the concept of storytelling by limiting yourself to the structure using the alphabet is quite breathtaking. The speed and pace of the dialogue matches the mood of the movie to perfection. A truly excellent piece which shows that true creativity can't be limited by the tools that one works with. I even liked the bathos at the end...

The tension was so... thick. Seriously, the way you did the suspense was awesome -- sort of like the 'and then there were none', in reverse. You know it's building up to something, and as it gets closer to the end of the alphabet, you can feel the tension building.

The end was a little lackluster to me, though it's hard to live up to that sort of buildup -- Hollywood can't do it either. You see so many films now that have a fantastic premise, and an ending that just doesn't cut it. One way to avoid this would be to imagine the end, before the beginning.

Nice work, though.

Wow. That was a great movie, I had the impression of watching Omega Man or some other creepy apocalyptic film, narrated in the manner of Dr. Suess. Fantastic, I love this movie! This really shows the potential of what we can do here.

Posted on January 9, 2006
- ImperialProductions

The atmosphere was well produced I enjoy films that have a sinister feeling about them, the vocals were superbly appropriate.The opening was a bit too dark but perhaps that is how it was intended? As the rest of the movie is well produced I figured that all was as intended.

I also have a feeling that I've heard of this story somewhere else, is it from a computer game?
I'd like to give this 4 and a half stars but it is probably the best effort I've seen on here so I've rounded up.

Posted on January 9, 2006

Very well done. I thought the lack of soundtrack was very fitting for this movie. The VO was great with just the right amount of despair and pain. I did like the ending...didn't exactly see it coming but works perfect. My only problem was the lighting...there were a few scenes I just couldn't make out. Overall though, this is a very fine film. Good work.

You may ask - how can I give this 4? Script and voicing are phenomenal. Story, tried and true, but very original take. Emotional impact - definitely present without being in-your-face. All around - unique and well executed.

But the ending. What? So, in short, the lack of a star may be due to my simple ignorance of interpretation. So, you'll forgive me...

4 stars for the time you put. you should win an award for the time... but it becomes too lengthy on the alphabet thing. so, i decide against 5 stars. I think this movie probably deserves 5 stars. but i'm not so keen. 4 stars it will have to be.

A very intelligent story. I like it. You were able to incorporate various sets and characters in a well-balanced short film. The dialog was smart and it keeps the view guessing along the way as to what might be next (letter-wise, it was easy to see where the story was going, but the fun in how to get there!). Well done!

The script alone is worth the 5 stars, well crafted, paced and delivered and in a tone that sets the atmosphere for the whole film. The film itself fits the narration beautifully and is free from the little quirks and glitches that plague many other films. For a second film this is an amazing achievement. Not only does it deserve 5 stars, but also 2 thumbs up, an extra brownie point, a pat on the back and nomination into whatever awards show Lionhead come up with. The DBs

Definitely deserves the "BEST SCREENPLAY" award for this site. i was blown away by the powerful dialogue and also great editing this film contained.

i would only complain with the ending; it sort of ruined the story. but it couldn't destroy, this great film's glory (yes i can do it too!!! okay, maybe not...) ;-)

Poetic and truly what I call "art". Poignant masterpiece. An incredible work and the rhymes didn't feel forced. Although I feel it's not original because people have done this before. A movie entitled, "Yes" with Joan Allen. It is however original in the sense that this type of dialogue is new to this website. No one has done poetry justice....Except for you.

A well thought out and intelligent story, told in a completely original way. I was dubious when I heard such high praises for this, usually when I have high expectations for something it ends up being disappointing. But this really does live up to the hype.

This was one of the most amazing movies I have seen so far on this website. Congrats, this is from A to Z a great movie. The VO is very moving and so is the whole story. It must have taken you ages to write this script. If not, you should consider writing for Hollywood ;-)

PS: Interested in Sci-Fi? I need some people to rate my first movie "Das gelbe Grauen". It has German VO but English subtitles. http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/29419

The first few second, the into... had me doubting... I'm usually biased against hot picks, but this movie is absolutely brilliant. The story-line was in-depth, creative, original, and compelling. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen from letters A-Y... the only problem I encountered was the ending.. which seemed rather melodramatic to me, but I can see why you'd have trouble dealing with a denouement, so I'll let that one slide... otherwise, ABSOLUTELY STUPENDOUS. Great voiceover, ambience, and scenery. You made a really interesting story without using cheap theatrics or tricks to do something no one had done before. There are few great dramas out there.. but this is definitely my favorite. 5 stars.

Best movie I've seen so far on this site. And I've waded through a lot of bad ones, believe me! Seven minutes 41 seconds of my life just flew by. Very original writing, congrats for that. I would guess you write a lot of poetry -
The other thing I liked was how you built up the tension without the use of music - a bit like watching that creepy sixth sense film with Bruce Willis. More please!

I'm not such a big fan of the off-stage narrator in movies, but still this was a very engrossing and expertly done piece of art. It has several original ideas and a thoughtfull story (even though not a completely new new).
The ending was a bit clichè but unexpected and proovided the necessary laugh after all the tension.

Very original and enjoyable. Unfortunally I can't give it a five star rating because of the voice acting. It sounded so mumbled which was a real shame as the stroy itself was cleaver. It's the sort of film that requires a very good voice actor, I know I couldn't do any better. Still a very good film and I look foward to seeing your next one.

Posted on December 30, 2005
- Glynner

Blown away.
I thought when I watched your Short film - the spaceship one - you were a one-timer who'd got lucky with a quick gag. This film has made me regret giving it 5 now. This is a classic. It's awesome. I am now a fan. I thought you weren't gonna make another movie. Boy was I wrong.
This is better than anything in the top 5 for me, hands down, and I hope that the paltry number of reviews you've gotten so far go through the roof.
The biggest problem you're going to have is trying to gain appreciation from an audience demographic that has been raised on Power Rangers Dino Thunder - and are too busy marking each other up to sit up and take notice of somebody better than they are.
This was amazing and it's incredible to think it's your second film. Many filmakers can only hope to be this original - it's way out of the league of most of the movie makers I've seen.
Blown away.
