Taking us back to the late 1970’s Writer/Director Nathaniel Barber’s Go Back is a dark tale rooted in psychological horror.
I have previous seen shorts from Barber which focused on the myth of the wendigo which were beautifully shot and fully immersive.
Go Back is more of the same quality with enough exposition in six minutes as required and plenty of tension as we follow a man driving through woodlands with what seems is a guilty conscious.
His journey is constantly halted by someone placing mannequins in the road with the feeling of a metaphor for lifeless figures blocking the route forward and perhaps moving on with his life.
Go Back is stylish and genuinely spooky at times so look out for it on the horror festival circuits over the coming months.
