Bad Adaptation of an Interesting Story
22 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Why is this getting so many good reviews?

I'm going to start out blunt. It's not a good short film.

The characters are boring and they have no personality or dept at all. Seriously. What can I say about Jan's character other than "she sells her soul to the devil"? The answer is nothing. She's dull. They are all dull.

The animation is just awful. It moves too fast and soppy, the way the characters are designed is ugly. The Devil looks like a fat alligator. In fact worst devil I've ever seen.

The songs are just bad seventies music. Though, it's not as horrible as everything else.

The movie's plot is interesting. An unfortunate person sells their soul to the devil for a better life, eventually they realize "I'm going to hell", and they stand trial against Satan. This was a bad adaptation of that story.

I'm giving this movie 1 out 10
