Edward G. Robinson,
While serving in Vietnam, a demolitionist witnesses the brutal torture/rape/murder of a young woman...ultimately, he becomes a serial rapist and killer himself, preferring explosives as his murder weapon of choice.
This is a pretty interesting short film which is sure to be relegated to late night obscurity due to its length and nature. it is the story of a man (mark gatiss, of "the league of gentlemen"/ "dr who" books fame) who is on a journey to examine a rare painting, but when he arrives at the church where the painting is supposedly held, he is set upon by some pretty bizarre characters.
Directed by jeremy dyson (the only member of the league of gentlemen writing team never to appear on screen in the tv show) it manages to create a nice sense of tension in a genuinely eerie setting. however, it is pretty bewildering, and at the end of the day, will not attract much attention apart from curious "league of gentlemen" fans, which is a shame, as it's nicely directed and there are great performances given by all.
