Soft for Digging
This stylized horror film, shot on 16 mm film and produced on a shoestring budget of 9,000 dollars, made its debut at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. When Virgil (Edmond Mercier) goes on a search for his lost pet cat, he becomes involved with the ghost of a murdered girl (Sarah Ingerson). Although there is little to the story, director JT Petty (who also wrote, produced, and edited the picture) makes the brave artistic decision to film the 74-minute feature with less than a minute of dialogue, and only one word spoken during the first half of the movie. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You can still have a very effective horror film and use no dialogue, a very deliberate pace, static camera shots if you know what you're doing."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"an exercise in craft economical and brilliant."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Intriguing for the first half hour, Digging's gimmick unfortunately gets tiresome too quickly"
‑ Christopher Null,
"...leaves a gruesome aftertaste la The Ring...[however] its strengths lie elsewhere."
‑ Anita Schmaltz, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
