Director's Comments

This is my entry for VN's halloween contest.

Staff Review

The classic W. W. Jacobs story comes to life with a bite, in Olson Studio's atmospheric entry into VN's Halloween contest. Impressive camera work spiced with spooky musical accent drive the twisted story into your memory. Olson Studios presents a cinematic style of film not commonly seen the dimension of brickfilming. Expansive set design provides intriguing new concepts; the camerawork is the highlight in this film, and the dramatic voice acting efforts are above par. Olson's The Monkey's Paw is a successful retelling of a classic chiller.
