“Enthralling. Loved it.”Paul
“A very enjoyable short drama”David
“An excellent, even disturbingly-realistic production. With some clever updating of a well-known classic, “Dead London” becomes compelling and new, even while familiar. Fine performances, flawless voice recording in what had to challenging outdoor locations, and spectacular sound effects, music, and over-all audio construction. Very highly recommended!”David Collins-Rivera
