Inside a gritty woodshed, a MacGyver figure peels an orange. He speaks of survival to a bloodied young man, who is tied up in more ways than one. Jerry Pyle’s BURN is a tour de force with exceptional acting, a claustrophobic mise-en-scene, stunning cinematography, and a growing sense of dread. Revenge flicks can be especially brutal, throwing your mind into a vice, and this short delivers nothing less than a squirm inducing finale. And this end is written straight out of a Satanic Jigsaw’s book.
