it's funny 'cause it's true
6 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

it's a good, clever little student film.

saw it at a festival. it was easily one of the more memorable shorts of the night; for good and bad reasons.

the bad - the patients voice is annoying, so annoying that i wanted her to be tortured longer, and Christian side of the film really bugged me and others.

the good - it's a simple and horrible idea, because it not an uncommon occurrence in surgery; perfect for a horror short

it's cheap but effective. short, darkly funny film and punches straight to it
