"Everything about "The Shadow Scarf" is hypnotic...(reminiscent of David Lynch in the best way) " via F This Movie!
"Bathed in reds, it carries a reminiscence of the 1977’s Suspiria but ‘The Shadow Scarf ‘is at once, both; spooky and mesmerizing...." via Indie Shorts Mag
"The Shadow Scarf is by all accounts one of the best examples of modern film noir I have ever seen." via That Moment In.com
“Abandoned House Productions presents an emotionally involving and mesmerizing drama, The Shadow Scarf, starring Asta Paredes and Clay von Carlowitz. Writer/director/actor Clay von Carlowitz explores what happens when a dark secret from the past strikes back in unsuspecting ways.” via Villain Media
"Oftentimes a short film is a stand-alone effort; an idea that is able to fully offer a story within a condensed amount of time. Some are able to expand into larger entities, as was the case with Andy Muschietti’s Mama, and there are others that are used as a type of portfolio of talents. The Shadow Scarf feels a bit like all three." via Short and Sweet Reviews
