I laughed, I died.
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short at the Sundance film festival in 2004, and it was by far one of my favorite films of the whole festival. The production quality was great, the storyline was hilarious. I thought for sure it would make to VH1 movie programming and become a cult hit. I just don't know what happened. The actors sounded great and the lyrics just got funnier and funnier. Nearly two years later, I am still googling around to see where I can pick up a copy of the film. An ambitious and very well executed short by a first-time filmmaker. Pretty Dead Girl stood out among all of the great films at Sundance. Shawn Ku definitely has a great career ahead. And I hope I get the chance to see PDG again.
