Trivia

Narrator Egon Hoegen is very well known in Germany as the voice of the education series Der 7. Sinn (1966) which gives tips for correct behavior in road traffic. By using this voice at the beginning, it gives the feeling of an authentic safety video for people raised in Germany. See also trivia for Starship Troopers (1997). See more »

short films are great and here's why
23 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

As a huge fan of short films, I only recently had the opportunity to see this on Channel4 (a UK channel that shows programmes that other channels don't think are commercial enough) - the beginning was intriguing as I was about to change channels, but then became curious to watch what looked like a work safety parody.

Gory though it is, it's the unfortunate situations that continue to make you laugh till the very end.

If you're a fan of Peter Jackson's Bad Taste and Braindead, you'll feel at home. Those that have 10 minutes to spare should spend it watching this. Highly recommended.
