Dissociative is the third short film from director Damon Rickardand. It tells the story of a man overwhelmed with paranoia about an assumed infidelity in just five minutes.
As he reflects over how to proceed, the film’s short length makes it difficult to discuss much more in the way of plot here without giving too much away.
The film’s runtime doesn’t allow for a great mystery in the film’s payoff, it’s questionable whether that kind of suspense was the director’s goal either. It was the weakest short for me, featuring a predictability outcome that a psychological horror dealing with dissociative identity disorder should really have been able to avoid.
