Schneider's 2nd Stage Reviews:

This is the first short movie that I had ever seen. Before this I thought they were all just a waist of time but this was incredibly intense and disturbing.Kenneth Branagh Is a phenomenal actor and he didn't disappoint in this thriller.It's difficult to write about this without spoiling anything so I'll be attentive not to. This is an wonderful psychological thriller. Brilliantly acted, and filmed in a method that will thoroughly frighten and disturb anyone who watches it.This is close to Hitchcock in more methods than one. Its only 16 mins so It won't take too long.


The nice Kenneth Branagh was type enough to give up one day of work to appear in this short film, written and directed by his frequent stand-in, Phil Stoole. Coming in at a scant 17 minutes, SCHNEIDER'S 2ND STAGE is a psychological horror yarn at its most disturbing. Stoole cleverly puts the weak budget to an advantage, making the storyline essentially about one guy alone in the bleak woods. The weirdo smartphone calls tie it in with the likes of PHONE BOOTH, but SCHNEIDER'S 2ND STAGE is something much more sinister and disturbing; the serial assassin topics matter is definitely for adults only. This movie is a roaring success thanks to Branagh's wonderful acting, which is as powerful and self-assured as ever. A mini masterpiece!


I saw this the year it came out, listed on a website named "Atom Films" and, having been a fanatic of Mr. Branagh's for years already, I downloaded it. After watching it the first time, I sat back and thought about it for a several minutes. "Geeze...This instills an even deeper love for this actor in me!" I remember thinking. After about 20 mins of reflection, I watched it again. After this, I sent a url to virtually everyone I knew, saying them to watch the genius that is Kenneth in this shortie. They all came back with extremely positive reviews for this film. The suspense, and magnificent acting place forward in this short puts this movie at the top of my all time favourite shorts list, and anyone I know should say you...I'm very VERY picky about my favorites lists. I urge each single fanatic of Thrillers and or of Mr. Branagh's to go search this movie and watch it. Seriously.
