A guy wielding a crowbar and wearing some astronaut suit. Is this a game trailer or what? It looks too slick to be a YouTube movie.
Many fan films are known for having great production values these days. Few are known for having good acting and even fewer for having a good story. ENTER THE FREEMAN covers it all, then adds suspense and action-packed panache.
I rarely tell someone "Don't watch this on Full Screen, alone, with the lights off.", but ENTER THE FREEMAN may be the exception, as I've seen friends jump!
Producer, Director, Editor, and Cinematographer Ian James Duncan (SLUDGE) and Writer and Actor Thomas Dunn (THE PERFECT WITNESS) made this on a $3,000 budget, which can be translated into "No one was paid to bust their ass on the making of this film." But as short films should be treated as your calling card when major features won't give a nobody like you a break, that's to be expected.
Also, yes, this is a fan film based in the HALF-LIFE universe. Though HALF-LIFE has been out of circulation for the last ten years, the game and story never die.
Starring Michael Thomas Wallace (BATTLE PLANET) as Evan Walsh, Thomas Dunn (THE PERFECT WITNESS) as Dr. Reynolds, Toni Christopher as Kate, and Bernhard Forcher (EXTRACTED) as Gordon Freeman. Director and Producer Ian James Duncan (BATTLE PLANET) and Writer and Actor Thomas Dunn (THE PERFECT WITNESS).
