A young man (Brandon Gadow) kills a guy (Dan Carbonaro) in self
defense. He then panics, hides the body in the trunk of a car he steals,
then drives around to his best friend (Rick Reger) so he gets him out of
the jam. The friend is less than pleased, naturally, but helps him still,
in sawing the body apart ... and hiding the evidence (i.e. the corpse) by

director Brandon Gadow proves himself to be versatile enough to provide
his skeletal plot with quite a bit of atmosphere, he by and large refrains
from showing something for mere shock value, and the whole thing is
accompanied by a pretty decent musical score, too.
In all, a pretty cool
