“A BLACK MIRROR-esque short about the next generation of Siri..This is a short and sweet one with some gruesome effects and a truly unnerving watching eyeball called Iris.”  AIN’T IT COOL NEWS

“A confidently directed short with a bloody payoff, IRIS features stunning cinematography from Nikolai Galitzine, which highlights the gorgeous natural location as well as the epic scale of the shoot.”  FANGORIA MAGAZINE

“It’s an amazing story, and it really grabs you by the throat. The characters (basically two) are well-defined and the final payoff is absolutely beautiful in a horrific way. This one picks up big points.” ADDICTED TO HORROR MOVIES
