If you're looking for a warm, nice and inspiring film to watch with your family then Alex Chandon's DRILLBIT certainly isn't what you're looking for. Set in the future where AIDS has become the world's number one killer, a doctor manages to create a miracle cure but a year later the drug turns people into mutants.
It seems director Chandon got into filmmaking so that he could give the middle finger to the BBFC who were censoring horror movies during the Video Nasty era and their silly ways continued throughout the time that this 33 minute short was produced. Of course, this film never had to go in front of the BBFC or else it would have been banned outright so with the history in mind it's easy to sit back and enjoy this gore feast that works in large part because you know it was made by someone who loves the genre and just wanted to go balls out in regards to violence and gore.
There's actually very little plot going on here but that's okay because there's plenty of red stuff to keep you entertained. The main reason for this film to exist is so that the viewer can get all sorts of graphic slaughters and the director uses just about every minute of the film to deliver them. Yes, the effects are very cheap but that doesn't take away from the fun or the fact that there's a lot of imagination at work. DRILLBIT is pretty much like underground cinema but it works as long as you don't take it too serious.
