The writer-director Meosha Bean and Darren Mancini blend the horror and thriller genre with several stories featuring actors like Jerrel O Neal, Kaye Williams, Shan Moreno, and others within Green Height Point taking its audience on an exhilarating journey about love, loss, and lies, therefore, it helps to hook the viewers to the content.


The plot of the short film-Green Height Point revolves around two families experiencing nightmares and a growing sense that something evil is going to take over them.


The film opens with a series of long shots, mid-shots, and close-up shots of a romantic as well as a happy couple along with background music leading to an unexpected turn building up the elements of mystery, suspense, and thrill to hold in the different moment by quickly switching to a white screen followed by the camera panning into the host Bradford A Wilson to establish the subject matter of the movie. The filmmaker has intelligently utilised conflict to elevate the horror in the style of the cinematic language and storytelling to provide a sense of discomfort as well as nostalgia similar to a 90’s thriller piece. The set design, colour pallet, lighting, dialogues, costume, hair, makeup, and props are kept natural to add realism to the screenplay so that the twists and turns can surprise the audience. The film should emotionally appeal to the viewers making them eagerly wait for the climax. The makers have also incorporated a few behind-the-scenes clips so that audience can experience and interpret the drama as they want to and not be confined to the mould given by Meosha Bean and Darren Mancini.


In terms of performance, Jerrel O Neal plays Tom who is a loving and caring partner to Kim on the surface but has a lot of layers to him. Neal understands the nuances in his character and performs with utmost conviction balancing between aggressive and romantic body language, utilising voice modulation, facial expression, and eyes showcasing the fear in dynamics between Tom and Kim that transcends beyond the screen therefore the audience wants Kim to break this relationship to live a happy and healthy life.

Kaye Williams plays Tessa who is a right mix of emotions as well as logic. She is continuously taking efforts to find out more about the haunted house as well as the darkness of Green Height Point. Williams adapts to the changing situations in the storyline that is communicated effectively through her acting skills, body language, facial expressions, eyes, camera angles, and eerie sounds.


Green Height Point talks about the theory of karma-what goes around comes around and so we should be extra careful about our behaviour as well as how others are behaving with us. The cinematic piece reiterates in regards to the basic fears like can we trust people that we allow to come into our lives these types of apprehensions cannot be avoided and the only option one has to face them. The creative piece discusses the importance of always listening to the inner conscience as it helps to deal with every issue in life that the person needs answers to.
