Jo Southwell - Review of 'Deirdre'

' Ireland is the perfect backdrop to tell the story of the doomed lovers. 'DEIRDRE' beautifully captures the innocence of adolescent romance. The film is a thrilling coming-of-age story that is shrouded in mystery. It has been a while since there was a teenage horror story that causes curiosity. If this short creates intrigue then I am curious to see what the director can accomplish in a feature film. 'DEIRDRE' has romance, horror, and supernatural elements that work flawlessly together to bring the folklore to life.' Review by horrorbuzz.com
