Contained is a story that explores the raw and intense origin of Dr. Richard Cardocki. After his son is maimed in a horrible dirt bike accident, Dr. Cardocki plunges into despair and madness.

Richard used to be happy. After losing his job at a mental hospital Dr. Cardocki began thinking the small town he lived in was cursed, especially after his son's injury. Convinced there was a way to heal his son, Richard set his sights on a morbid solution.

Armed with his delusional instincts and ability to push beyond the limits of mental endurance, Dr. Cardocki must satisfy the unraveling hunger of his mind before his actions present this town with another dark chapter.

I think it was too repetitive and after i watched it I read the description and I was surprised because I had no idea that's what it was about. I thought it had something to do with a zombie

Ewwww....Yuck....good job, lol. Gore is not my cup of tea but I think the suspense was there. The synopsis aided me in the story line.

I have a crush on how creepy this was.....

If I were able to give it 20/10 I wouldn't because I'd be too busy trying to find a way to give it a 30!

Well done team!

Definitely need to improve on the special effects makeup for the ripped out eyes... It only appears onscreen for a few seconds, but it's obviously fake... Also your blood consistency and colour is off. Otherwise, it looks neat.The cinematography is beautigul, especillay the opening, with the scenery.

Hate suspense trailers and actually didn't mind this one. I think with such a popular genre for indep. filmmakers, you need to show a little more story that draws audiences in. This is an insanely competitive genre, good luck!
