Experienced branded content and short filmmaker Patrick
Green returns with the intriguing and riveting short film Mommy’s Little
Monster, is about a woman, Kim, and her son, Philip on the run from an
Kim, is played by Jenny Pellicer, but I actually thought she
Katy Perry to begin with, but Jenny, whose previous credits include TV shows The
Bridge and State of Affairs, is great in the role. What great about
Jenny’s performance is her ability to show fear and compassion. Her expressions
and body language display both of these emotions in a fine showing of acting
ability. Philip, played by Tate Birchmore who at such a young age already has a
lengthy list of IMDB credits, has not wasted one iota of his experience. Tate
displays paranoia well and he and Jenny are a great pair. They both also
display a level of shared trauma that felt real.
The script, also from Patrick Green, is well written and all
the fine details are considered. Kim’s sudden escape is apparent due to the
pyjamas she and her son are wearing, her ability to track and use a weapon is
explained – it all works.
The thrilling short film also offers a great atmosphere –
the silent forest, the isolated cabin, the perceived threat of a violent and/or
possessive ex – it makes the film extremely tense and realistic. What Green has
achieved in Mummy’s Little Monster’s 12-minute run time is great and
could easily be adapted into a feature film that I’d gladly watch.
