"[Blaine Vedros] an outstanding performance in under 11 minutes. It was emotionally driven, layered with pain, exhaustion, and regret."

Scifi & Scary Interview with Dir Eric Kleifield and Lilyn G. July 16, 2018

On the concept of time travel in film: "I’ve always been interested in the subject of time-travel, and always thought it made for an interesting narrative device.  I also loved the concept of confining everything to one room, and only using one character."  "By isolation all the action to one room, it allows the viewer to really focus in on the intricacies and repercussions of time travel."

"Whenever someone can deliver a well-made horror story in 12 minutes or less, I’m always impressed. It takes a lot of talent and creativity to do, and that’s something that director Eric Kleifeld surely has an abundance of! We had the opportunity to talk with him about his career, his inspiration for Mainline his love for the horror genre, and more. Enjoy!"
