So this is a short film brought to us by Faux Pas Illinois director Michael Wade Johnson from 2013 who brought us such films as Candie’s Harem, Brimstone and God’s Hostage…  is about a relatively young lady who is having trouble having a child with her boyfriend.

The beginning of the film has two couples describing having children after having troubles of their own, I’m assuming artificial insemination. Azura is obviously pressured by her mother to have a grandchild but there also is some information about Azura’s guy that is keeping her from having a child as well.

In the midst of an argument she accidentally kills Simon, something doesn’t smell right with his ex wife’s story so she ends up ironing out the details… not only that but her sister tells her she just got pregnant and ultimately she goes on a psychotic killing spree till she gets herself knocked up… i actually think she looks better in dreds… Azura…

I’ll tell ya something it is a weird slasher short but it definitely is a little humorous how mental women can get about having a kid… but would they necessarily go to these extremes.  I thought the acting was relatively decent and the idea unique I’d definitely recommend that if your looking for something to watch that’s short and not bad a watch besides to catch Lynn Lowry as the mother of the intended mother? who can beat that. I enjoyed the film for what it is.
