  1. I like the overall feel with the shots and colors! The foreshadowing in some of the lines in preparation for the twist is a good touch too.
    But the unnatural dialogue kinda hurts it a bit though, with things like "cover the stump" and "apple of my pie" feels kind of forced and detracts from the immersion.
