Transporter Short Film

Why Watch? In this inventive short from Damon Colquhoun, a young man is trapped by a family who deals in human trafficking. He stands on the cusp of achieving the capability of teleporting himself to a different world merely by imagining it, but he’ll have to act quick if he’s going to save the latest girl to fall into his brother’s basement.

Thick with plot and brimming with a creepy unease thanks to an unrelenting score and two devilish villains, Transporter opts for unnerving atmosphere over mind-blowing optics. That doesn’t mean it gets lazy on the visuals — the close-cropped camera work does some serious lifting toward making us feel as trapped as our young hero, and there’s a gorgeous rendering of the imagined planet in the mix as well.

Even though the acting gets slightly too soap operatic for its own good, this is a great concept executed with goosebumps. Beyond any gadgets or CGI crutches, this is a bite-sized Twilight Zone episode with a sinister heart.
