The visual look of the film utilises the black and white style to brilliantly create the dark gothic tone to the film, which is reminiscent of the Universal horror films and classic Hammer Horror. From the beautiful landscape shots of the castle, to the more angled scenic within the graveyard, which work especially well to create the eerie atmosphere by utilising the location.
Philip Rogers - Critic
Adam is a brilliantly entertaining short from writer-director Gemma Paul, who continues to showcase herself as an upcoming director to watch out for, thanks to her stunning visual style and creative storytelling. The film perfectly encapsulates a gothic horror feel and is beautifully shot.
Black and white cinematography and VFX of electric sparks, in the setting of an old laboratory and of a cemetery, give this short an atmosphere of WW2 – sci-fi / horror tale, creating a reminiscence of settings like “Return to Castle Wolfenstein” and stories like those.
Prisma Film Awards
What we loved in ‘Adam’, is the power of lights and shadows, as the short relies on the perfect movement of lights that creates the masterpiece.
Warren Hicks plays a remarkable role in this piece, being intense like a supernova in every scene.
‘Adam’ is the perfect piece for the ones who forgot how nice and charming short stories can be.
