What a bloody mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
25 March 2002 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This will surely go down as one of the bloodiest short films in Irish movie history. Certainly it could come to be seen as the "Wild Bunch" of Irish cinema.

I saw another deadly Irish short movie, "The Braineater", a while ago and maybe this helped pave the way for it. They both came from the same film school. Don't they feed these guys?

It took a look at the tedium of slacker work but wasn't boring like "Clerks". I was quite relieved when the action got going, because I knew then I wouldn't be listening to the characters droning on about "Star Wars" and the plight of the working classes in the empire.

Wicked stuff!!!!!
