Storyline

The unimaginable happens. Sayuri is pronounced 'dead' by her doctor, but her body continues to function. Her wounds begin to fester and her body begins to rot. Her once loving mother, father and sister are repulsed as their home starts reeking of decomposing flesh. Unable to bear it any longer, they corner Sayuri holding a can of gasoline.... She flees for her life, but is snatched away by a strange man who runs a freak show, where Sayuri is forced to exhibit her putrefied body and dance before an audience of men dressed in black. Isolated in the desolate hills, Sayuri thinks she has escaped them, but she's wrong.... Written by Anonymous

grim, sad, outrageous, and funny
21 September 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This short is both very grim and quite funny. The dead girl is such a good girl--a real sweetheart. Nevertheless, in spite of her inner goodness, she is subjected to horrible abuse by fate in general and by her parents in particular. The fact that she is such a sweet and dutiful daughter makes her posthumous abuse by her family the most unfair and confusing part of her death. And still, she literally plods on in misery, losing body parts and suffering humiliation with stoic resignation.

In one sense, the film plays off of a universal teenage-girl fantasy of self-pity: "I'm always so good, and look how they treat me. I really don't deserve this. If I dropped dead, they'd be sorry." But part of the horrible joke is that she does in fact drop dead, and instead of being mourned, she only becomes a garbage disposal problem. By twisting this daydream to ludicrous extremes, the film both amuses and horrifies. The images are both surreal and laughably gory. Good job!
