Confessions of a Haunting… is a new three minute short from Andrew J.D. Robinson (We Are the Missing, The Becky Carmichael Fan Club). While not the first short of his I’ve reviewed it is the first micro short so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Short during quarantine, it takes the now familiar form of a solitary person (Julie Mainville, Butchers) recording herself as she looks at us via the camera. She begins tearfully talking about her estranged, and now deceased, father.
And just when you think you know where Confessions of a Haunting… is going to go, it takes an entirely different path. Obviously with a film this short saying anything more risks being a spoiler. All I can say is it does manage to deliver a chill, but at the same time be uplifting.
Julie Mainville is the entire film and she really does a great job here. Having only seen her in one previous, and not very good film, I wasn’t expecting much. She shows that, given the right material, she can shine.
At only three minutes Confessions of a Haunting… is a fast watch. And since it’s free to watch on YouTube there’s no reason not to check it out. You can check it out here or on the director’s YouTube Channel along with his other films.
