8:59:29 is a unique novelette that tells the story of a disgruntled adjunct teacher who is fed up with her boss. In order to get rid of him she devises a diabolical plan with the help of a local teenager. Using her knowledge of film-making, she follows online instructions to make a cursed short film.
Overall, this was a good and short read. It reminded me of The Ring movies, but here we got to see how the actual cursed tape was made. I did find that the story did drag a little toward the middle, which is a bit problematic for such a short read, but I was glad
I stuck with it. The ending was everything I wanted and maybe a bit more. A very fitting and evil ending!
