Screamfest Review: “Reaver is a perfect example of a Hollywood style short, the SPFX are immense, the story is quick and to the point and the action and visuals do not disappoint, even a wonderful performance by Richard Burgi puts the icing on the cake of the one of the best shorts I saw at the entire festival.” – Sean Evans, BACK TO THE MOVIES

I really enjoyed Reaver. Little touches like the scene where Chris is watching a TV documentary about our place in the universe and comparing it to what fish must see beyond the surface of the water were particularly impressive to me.
