Such a f*cking riot!
24 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

I completely and utterly dig this one. In all of about two minutes, it is just as nasty as it is oddly cute, and it's downright hilarious as well. The animation is great, and the soundtrack suits it all very well. The ending is gory fun, but, of course, none of it is to be taken seriously at all. I really don't want to spoil anything. I guess there's not much to explain here, because it should really just be seen. For anybody who doesn't know, it's on a fairly accessible compilation of short films called "Smash Cuts!: Totally Twisted Shorts Fest". Quite a few good ones on there, in fact! Since I'm not able to review this without at least ten lines in the review, here's one. Here's another one, too. And another, for good luck.
