A scary and grim horror film.

Though nowhere near as graphic, Subway is in the tradition of classic revenge-horror flicks like I Spit on Your Grave and The Last House on the Left. This suspenseful short film originally played at the 2002 NYC Horror Film Festival. Its location shooting is spot on. It has an attractive lead and a go-for-broke climactic shot that’s a thing of beauty.
A beautiful, voluptuous, Bohemian-looking girl played by Heather Soto (this story’s Red Riding Hood) misses her train to Brooklyn and ends up stuck in the most secluded subway station in New York City. (It must be really, really late.) She ends up having to fend off an attacker and would-be rapist (Gideon Horowitz). This scene is heightened by frightening editing and some monstrous dialogue delivered by Horowitz.
But the shot that everyone will be talking about comes later, when the predator is alone on the train. The lights go off, the sound fades, and then... well, I won't spoil it. It’s a satisfying conclusion to a scary and grim horror film.
