Storyline

Black and white images pass across the screen as a woman's voice sings a dirge about the fine art of poisoning. We see the remains of men poisoned by women and women poisoned by men. A masked ball gives occasion for a drop of quicksilver into a cup of tea. Solitary mourners, who may also the poisoners, visit graves of loved ones. Money flows from the deceased to the guilty, all under the sign of the cross. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Is this a short film or a music video?
23 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This was included on the disk "Shorts: Volume 2"--a rather dull collection of short films. Shorts are among my favorite style of films but somehow the people assembling this second collection had a hard time finding quality content--and it wasn't nearly as good as the first volume or other shorts collections.

What makes this choice unusual for inclusion in the set is that I am not sure if this should be considered a short film or just a music video. My daughter recognized the video right away and said she thought all along it had just been a music video--though it is one where you don't really see the singer--just unusual visuals.

As for the quality of the video performance, it was excellent--the graphics were really neat and the song was funny in a very sick and twisted way. If you haven't guessed, it's all about using poison to murder people and it looks as if it was produced by the Addams Family (the film version, not the nice TV Addams'). Lovers of the weird and especially Goths will adore this film/video--others, most likely, will find it too weird and creepy. See for yourself--it is awfully clever.
