Portal: No Escape - a must-watch short film

Created between the two hugely successful Valve games, Portal: No Escape is a gritty, live action, seven minute short featuring silent protagonist Chell. Director Dan Trachtenberg has beautifully recreated the Portal universe, right down to the distinctive gun and Weighted Companion Cube. It's so good we couldn't wait to feature it in our Friday Spurious Awards (opens in new tab) .

I'm the News Editor at Total Film magazine, running the opening pages of every issue where you can read exclusive interviews and see first-look images from the biggest films. I was previously the Community Editor at sci-fi, fantasy and horror movie bible SFX. You'll find my name on news, reviews, and interviews covering every type of movie, from the latest French arthouse release to the biggest Hollywood blockbuster. My work has also featured in Official PlayStation Magazine and Edge. Outside of my day job, I'm a FromSoft fanatic (proudest achievement: beating Malenia solo) and a TV connoisseur (translation: I'll watch anything).
