Review: The Trimmer (2011)

First of all I´d like to thank  Herschel Zand III for offering me the chance to review his new short film.
Jessi (Erin Baker) is an uptight, rich kid who has had everything handed to her by her equally uptight Aunt (Honey Gregory). When Jessi causes her landscaping crew to be fired, they enact a grizzly revenge upon her. The Trimmer is a short film (running time approx 18 minutes) written, shot, edited and directed by Herschel Zand III. The limits of it´s budget is evident in limited setting and a limited cast but it´s all used to it´s advantage. The acting is decent, pretty good camera work and editing. The pacing is good, the film has several of "must have" ingredients to make a succesful slasher, we get cute girls, some nudity (courtesy of the beautiful Erin Baker), a pretty decent looking killer and gore. There are some humour in the film, if that is postive or negative is up to you but personally I usually do prefer the films that plays it straight.There is some gore, it´s computer gendered and it doesn´t look good.
This review is based on a online source provided by Herschel Zand III
Rating: 3½ out of 7. If you are a fan of slashers you should check out The Trimmer.
