A student moves into a run-down building in New York City. His bizarre neighbors make a concoction in their apartment they call wine, but when he takes some of it, he turns into a deformed, murderous monster.
Apocalypse Pooh (1987). Pure genius is the only way I can describe this animated short. The film makers splice in a chopped up Disney cartoon featuring Winnie the Pooh and his comrades with the insane audio soundtrack from Apocalypse Now (1979) and they pull it off. Winnie the Pooh stars as Willard as he looks for the notorious Colonel Kurtz (played by Eeyore). The gun boat crew is also featured as well. Piglet, Tigger and that weird looking rabbit make appearances as well. To try and describe the short would be an injustice to those who haven't watched it yet. I felt that it's better than the original movie (that's my opinion).
I would try to find a copy of this brilliant short. Fun stuff that wont disappoint you one bit!
