There is only one question I need answered; who or what has been Released from Love?

Impressions

In this sickly six-minute short, Released from Love stabs at of the viewer’s heart with this gut-wrenching take on what ‘love’ is. Beautifully filmed every scene from the get-go was enjoyable, the production quality top notch and the actors believable.

Being my first experience from de Azevedo’s film background I was unsure at first at what I was getting myself into but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by his work and his ability to unnerve the viewer was not wasted on me.

Azevedo has done well with the direction of this short. What I especially enjoyed was the simplicity of the plot and the ability to tell a story through actions and not words. Tastefully bloody Released from Love had my skin crawling at the disturbing atmosphere and practical effects.

It is very rare to come by a short film that tries too hard with the ‘shock value’ when it comes to horror films. Azevedo’s short, however, struggled with none of these and in fact was enough to make anyone feel uncomfortable without the use of over the top flamboyance.

In Released from Love it goes to show that the people you think you knew may harbour a dark secret behind closed doors! Filled with looming menace Azevedo’s short relies heavily on mood and atmosphere penning a great watch. I can safely say that I haven’t watched a short that has made me feel this uncomfortable in a while!
