We are constantly looking for new and different films when it comes to bringing you the best in genre entertainment. Short films are often where you find the most exciting new filmmakers taking chances, yet most audiences don’t seek them out. With that in mind, we will be showcasing a short film each week in an effort to give a signal boost to shorts we enjoy.
A simple ghastly idea executed with terrifying precision makes ONE LAST DIVE so successful.
Made in 2013 in collaboration with Vice, Jason Eisener (writer/director of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN) presents a member of the police’s diving team scouring the shadowy depths of a body of water. Eisener is a multi-hyphenate threat—beyond HOBO, he produced TURBO KID, and edited SOUTHBOUND as well as GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS. Despite being five years old, this very short film has haunted for the past five years.
