A few different websites/blogs have been kind enough to review Terry and Brenda, so I thought I'd collect them all in one place. If you want to review it tweet me at @JamHoopFilm.

"Takes delight in exposing the dark underbelly of suburbia. A confident and delightful film, with superb central performances."
Read more.

"Manages to spank the sweet spot between character development, comedy and horror. A confident and charming film about the more humdrum side of macabre debauchery." Read more.

"What writer and director Jamie Hooper has managed to produce in fifteen minutes is astonishing. An unnerving, uncomfortable and yet superb film." Read more.

"It balances the humanistic comedy with the skeletons in the closet of England’s street. There's a sense that this couple will stick around in my mind for a long time."
Read more.

"Fun and alarmingly believable. Manages to completely subvert expectations a number of times."
Read more.

"Hooper's style is adept at framing glacially-paced normality and delivering tightly-edited, invigorating subversion."
Read more.

"Offers a darkly comic view on middle-age partnership, as well as an exploration of the things some people will do to keep whatever shades of love there is left alive."
Read more.

"Definitely not your usual horror film. Brilliant in its own right, leaving you wanting more.
This is an intriguing, dark and original horror that's worth checking out."
Read more.

"Impressive style and quality. It does a great job of building tension and unease throughout."
Read more

"Realistically scary and the performances are delightful."
Read more. Plus an interview.

"Hooper gets everything spot on in this tasty short. Terry and Brenda will keep you hooked until the end." Read more.

"Will have you both laughing and cringing at the same time."
