A pair of whacked-out cartoon-like exterminator/hitmen kill the owner of a burglar-alarm company, and stalk the partner who hired them, his wife, and a nerd framed for the murder, who tells the story in flashback from the electric chair.
There isn't too much to say about this film, especially since it is only somewhere between 6 and 7 minutes long. It sees Cheryl Guttridge as a woman stalked in her home by a psycho, played by Scott Speigel. With no dialogue, the film is simply an extended, unnerving stalk sequence, with peculiar music and decent camera-work working together to produce an efficiently eerie feel that builds to a nice, slightly grisly and surprising climax. Scott Speigel wields his knife with suitable menace and the whole thing plays like a decent, creepy slasher finale. Its hardly earth shaking but it does have a certain kick to it and it certainly shows off Sam Raimi's talent. Although he never made an entirely straight horror film on the evidence of this short it definitely seems like he should have given it a go. Sadly, any such thing from Raimi is unlikely now given the success of the worthy but juvenile blockbuster fare that he now concerns himself with. At least Scott Speigel came up with one of perhaps the finest of the late period slashers, the gloriously grisly Intruder. Altogether, if grimy, curiously creepy low budget fare is your cup of tea, then this is a worthwhile 6 minutes I'd say.
