Torro. Torro. Torro! - Lawnmower, Pies and Bruce Campbell.
2 October 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

So yes, I sat down to watch this little seven minute short film directed by Josh Beck and now currently "Hostel: Part III" director Scott Spiegel. It features Bruce Campbell as an officer, and he produced this film too. This is just after "Within the Wood", what would inspire Sam Raimi to make his feature film debut, and staple in his entire filmography. This is just before Bruce Campbell to the world of cinema, will know him as Ash... Of The Evil Dead fame. That now seemingly is being remade, without even him cameoing in it- Yet Sam Raimi is producing that one. Well, this film is about a lawnmower that goes, not on a deadly rampage- But on a rampage of slapstick comedy.

It creates funny chaos in the little town it goes over, and there a sequence in this film were it chases a man over a table, and shoots pies and forks at people. A fun little adventure film, of a out-of-control lawnmower. Stephen King would laugh I think- But make it into something else. The film have a form of narrative structure, yet it is the "rampage" this lawnmower goes on, is the drive in the film. At the end of the film- The lawnmower "insults" a fisherman. They play just before this little sequence, the famous "Jaws"-Theme by John Williams. It's something I like indeed. The lawnmower grabs his fishing-hook and let him on a ride of the fence. Then it suddenly drives into a hole and is being buried alive- Only to "resurrect". Then the film cuts to the credit line.

This little shorty is something I recently discovered- And when I saw it... I liked it, very well indeed. The acting is so and so, yet it seems that a lot of heart and some soul went into this production and even Campbell produced this... So it on a way screams a small amount of dedication to the film as whole. I had a great time seeing it, and it was on pair, with other shorties I've seen, like: "Signs" and "More". The slapstick is there, and the feeling of a town, is something I can relate to. The cinematography is swell too. I liked the film, but now I have to lock my lawnmower in the garage... If you know what I mean.

The End.
