Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson
Set the air-conditioning to chill and prepare yourself for this spooky little tale.
A boy is terminally ill and has to eke out his remaining days in the company of his austere, God-fearing aunt, who took him in after his parents died "somewhere hot".
His only refuge is his shed and his pets - but is there more to them than meets the eye?
This short film is neatly intercut with shadow puppetry to illustrate the more sinister elements and captures the spirit of menace perfectly. You'll never look at the shed at the bottom of your garden in the same light again.Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2003
