Storyline

A teenage boy, troubled and alone wanders the grassy hills looking for something. He settles on a slope and searches for some activity to amuse him. He begins to pick pieces of his body off and taste them. This seems like a good thing to do. So he removes his eye, his face and finally his own guts and eats them all in an orgy or extasy and gore. Written by Eric Forsberg, Director

Great Little Extra
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this as an extra on a movie titled NIGHT OF THE DEAD put out by THE ASYLUM and produced by an unknown company called CEREBRAL EXPERIMENT. We expected the usual behind the scenes extras but we were pleasantly surprised by something unexpected. This is a little video of maybe a film that was made by the director of night of the dead and also the man who played one of the zombies in the movie and also was the second unit director. It took guts was all about guts. It was about five minutes long and it started with Charles Schneider walking around aimlessly looking for something to do. He was so bored that he starts to bite himself and taste his own ear wax and do really unsettling things to himself until he eats his own insides. The music was not so great but I see from this IMDb page that it was originally put together with some punk rock song that was written for it. I would love to see it with that music. But it was still impressive, especially that the film makers did it when they were teen agers.
