A young girl hides in the woods while spying on her older brother and his friends bullying a kid by locking him in a dog cage.
The Stolen is a bit too short to really flesh out what is going on. During its six minute runtime, the audience is witness to interesting visuals that appear to be hinting at a story but none seems to be present. This is to say that I may have completely missed the point of the film; however, that would likely point to the film not being accessible to most audiences.
This film looks like something I would enjoy watching, especially with the dark attire of the ‘Fairy Queen’ combined with the inherent creepiness of young children. The Stolen is a bit underdeveloped; it desperately needs an increase in both content and length.
This Film was screened at the 2012 Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
