Tim Egan’s Curve (2016) short film stars Laura Jane Turner. Curve‘s plot synopsis: “Clinging to a smooth, curved surface high above a sentient abyss, a girl tries to cover the few feet back to safety without losing purchase and falling to her death.”

Curve, from beginning to end, is full-tilt suspense and tension. The beginning of the short film is like the beginning to Predators – the lead character wakes up in an unimaginable situation. The main character in Curve deals with her precarious situation the only way that she can, one inch at a time. I have seen big budget dramas and superhero films that do not hold the viewer’s attention the way this short film does.

*Spoilers Begin.* I am guessing that the girl’s leg is broken but here are the two problems that poses: 1.) that leg is keeping her from going over the edge, and 2.) if she is ever to get out of the situation that she was in, she will most-likely need both legs. *Spoilers End*

There is a entire backstory not included in this short film but that doesn’t detract from it in the slightest. It leaves good questions in the viewer’s mind by the end of the film instead of bad ones e.g. *Spoilers Begin.* what the hell is that voice emanating from the opening below the girl? Is it in her head? *Spoilers End*
