Jeremiah Kipp's "The Pod" received an excellent notice in the latest issue of print magazine Shock Cinema (#32, with Ronny Cox of "Total Recall" and "Deliverance" and Tim Thomerson from "Near Dark" on the cover). "The Pod" is a short film produced under Kipp Miller Productions by Brian Jude and James Felix McKenney, and written by Carl Kelsch.

Here's what critic Steve Puchalski had to say:

THE POD (2006). The latest short film from director Jeremiah Kipp quickly thrusts the viewer into territory worthy of early Cronenberg, by using an unpredictable new underground drug as a crowbar into a dysfunctional relationship. "The Pod" is recommended only for couples with a deep connection, and Jonas (Emanuele Ancorini) is desperate to snag a hit of this stuff. You see, he's a tattooed urban deadbeat, his girlfriend Caroline (Mary Remington) is on the verge of a suburbia-bound break-up, and he's betting that this drug will keep them together. Gosh, that's a brilliant idea! After Jonas pressures Caroline into taking half of The Pod (alone!), let the hallucinations begin! Soon she's wandering the city streets, searching for her MIA lesser-half, tripped out of her pretty l'il mind, and watching passersby mutating. Obviously she's in way over her head. When she finally locates dumb-ass Jonas, it's not going to be pretty. The film boasts outstanding production values and some wonderfully altered moments, but writer Carl Kelsch's potentially fascinating concept has little time to develop in only 20 minutes. With all of this unsettling ambiance, we're primed to expect the worst, so its pay-off is a bit of an emotional letdown. Nevertheless, this is a beautifully constructed short fueled by addictive co-dependency, and exceptional performances, including Larry Fessenden as deliciously creepy "pod" dealer Telly, who warns Jonas of the potential consequences, even as he seduces him into a dose.

In October, 2006, filmthreat.com gave "The Pod" a four-star review. Check it out here: http://filmthreat.com/index.php?section=reviews&Id=9359.
