SPIRA (2012)

''This is the very impressive directorial debut of Jon James Smith. It is a disturbing, unsettling, well shot horror film that was made on a zero budget.'' -


''It's a good concept that is very well executed by Smith who has a great eye for framing and mood but Spira is particularly memorable for Hephzibah Roe's excellent performance as Laura and Smith's own sound design which is remarkably effective. This is an impressive debut.'' -


''a genuinely unsettling thriller that is incredibly impressive given that it was shot without a budget by a first time director.'' -


''a psychological horror thriller that captivates.'' -
