"Suffer" is about a man who wakes up in a dark room surrounded by people wearing white masks and then is put to the test when a rather large (muscular-wise) man enters the scene to beat the crap out of him. What follows is a bizarre adventure that impresses on multiple levels.

Ryan Robbins does a great job as a martial artist, a freaked out man, and a hero in this short film. He is stuck in a bizarre situation that he has to get out of and he emotes everything he should as the situation dictates.

The story is simple, but what is in there is so eerie and violent you can't look away. Think "Hostel" with mixed martial arts and well directed (Yes, I had to take a shot at Eli Roth). It's a solid short film that leaves you wanting more and thankfully we will get it.

I decided to review this short, caught at MIFFF, because it was probably the only short that had me thinking, "this should be a feature." Thankfully, one of the crewmembers (Aaron Au?) made an appearance at the festival and let us know that there is in fact a feature film version of the short in the works. To this we WOOT!
