Trouble

by Syd Briscoe


Eli Brown: “Trouble” - 2 mins 57s

This ominous promo for Eli Brown's latest track 'Trouble' creates a sense of foreboding straight away. The film's moody visuals and muted grade grip the viewer and refuse to let them go, with constant movement only enhancing the dread. These characters are fleeing some unknown threat - one that remains unseen and is all the more chilling for it.

There are a few clues for eagle-eyed audience members to grasp, seeded judiciously throughout by director Brock Neal Roberts. Overturned chairs, a blinking kitchen light, and later shots depicting the aftermath of gory violence obscured by shadow. The overall effect is deeply unsettling yet mesmeric, and will encourage horror-loving viewers to immediately jump back in for a second look.
