Karma Touches Everyone (2011) – By Duane L. Martin

Karma Touches Everyone is a bit of an experimental short film from Boomarang Entertainment. It takes place in Italy, and any description I could come up with for it would be awkward at best, so I won’t even try to get into detail with it. Basically it’s about this woman whose father and brother were killed by "some bad men", and she meets up with this American guy who’s there in Italy on vacation and taking photos. After they meet up and have a short conversation, he helps her get home because she has a hurt ankle, but apparently she only wanted to get him there so he could be sacrificed to complete a pact she made with some demon to get her brother back…or something.

To be honest, I didn’t really understand this one fully. There was stuff going on I didn’t really get, and scenes that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. The main storyline was ok, though it felt incomplete. The acting was good though, and from a technical standpoint, the film was well made. I think if the story was both clearer and embellished, and the film was about twice as long as it is, it would have felt more complete and solid. As it is, it’s a nice experimental piece and definitely worth checking out, but with some extra work and more clarity, it could have really become an interesting and fully articulated story.
