Storyline

Death is training his son in the art and responsibilities of the family business. His son does well until he's sent out on his own to claim an accident victim. Instead, he's asked by a friend of the dying man to help with CPR. Taken aback, he assents, the dying man is resuscitated, and Death's son is in the doghouse with dad. Enraged, pop gives his son 24 hours to deliver a corpse, so the young man sets out to ice the man who asked him for help earlier that day. Junior's target is a young actor, Tom, going through opening night and loved by Sarah, a rather histrionic young woman. A near-Death experience awaits them all as Junior comes of age.

Interesting Twist
17 April 2005 | by (Allegan, MI) – See all my reviews

If you have a great love of dark comedy, then you'll want to catch this short.

Cillian Murphy plays Death's son and helped bring back a man from the brink of death. This angers his father and Murphy is sent on a 24 hour mission to bring about the death of someone.

He has the person in mind, but it's one misstep after another.

It all comes down to the wire. The ending might surprise you.

The only reason I did not give this movie 10 stars (as Cillian Murphy is worth it by himself) is the girlfriend of the man Murphy is out to get. She's straight out of a Jane Austin novel (along with her friend) and has no place in this movie.

You can catch this movie at Atom Films.
