To Have and to Hold 2000

13 mins United Kingdom Director. John Hardwick

This ghoulish short has a truly gripping premise. Distracted by her boyfriend while driving on a quiet country lane, a young woman regains consciousness in their wrecked car to find herself hand in hand with her lover. But his lifeless hand, frozen by rigor mortis refuses to let go. John Hardwick's film is also a surprisingly tender reflection on the familiar vow: 'til death us do part'.
