What would you do if some dark stranger came to your house and said that if you push the button on a box, all your problems would go away... but there is a catch... every time you press the button, someone you know dies. Would you still push the button?? Well... this great short by Keith Munden, Richard "Rico" Bauthier and the crew at Legacy Verse poses that exact question.
This short has that whole 'Twilight Zone' episode feel... which is great and it works!
Becky (Wendy Davis Boyer) and Steve (Rick Davis) are a couple down on their luck. Steve is out of work and has been for a while and Becky is having a very difficult time with finances. Suddenly, there is a knock at the door. When Becky answers it, there is a Dark Man (Richard "Rico" Bauthier) claiming that with a push of the button, all of her problems can be solved. Hmmmm.... this could be fun... let's play!
Becky has a little too much fun... and well... things go from bad to worse quickly.
Legacy Verse proves once again why they are the masters of literally the no-budget movies. A simple but yet intriguing story... and of course filmed very well. This was done in 2012 but I just found it recently... glad I did. My mother (she's also another reviewer) and myself both enjoyed this and you will too. Great find!
