Storyline

The "Mime Massacre" is a tale of one man's lifelong mission for vengeance on all mimes that leads him to where the story begins, the mother of all mime gatherings, the Mime Workshop. Penetrating the mime lair, the Mad Man's years of both hatred and unwitting respect for the craft of mime, culminate in explosive mayhem. The Mad Man uses the one method the mimes are powerless against, the dark side of mime. The root of the Man's madness is revealed through a shocking faded memory from his childhood, of a disturbing encounter with a mime. This memory was the catalyst for the creation of a monster with a human soul. The "Mime Massacre" leaves us with a highly debated question, just how powerful is the untapped human brain?... Or was it all just bullshit? Written by Jennifer Jang

Silent but Deadly

This was an interesting little film that I found both humorous and very gory at the same time. This movie is about a psycho who walks into a mime rehearsal room and kills them in a very interesting way. This movie was a mime trick itself, barely using any sound and portraying each weapon as nothing but air. It was also a very gory film. Now the acting, was mostly physical and for a physical performance, the actors did an very well job acting like they have been shot or hacked to bits. However, when the time called for a spoken performance, the actors did a job that would rival a Lifetime movie or a WGN soap opera and they didn't really do that good of a job. These actors were very good physical performers.

The storyline was very well crafted and thought of. Rather than a man walking in with a real gun, he walks in with an "air gun" and literally kills a mime with an "air bullet," effectively portraying the concept of "mind over matter." I love the way that each murder weapon was played out and how the mimes reacted to each gruesome death. As we all know, with every horrid death there is blood and guts. In this movie there is a fair amount of blood splashes and splatter. However, when the blood splashes and squirts on the main villain's face, it looks like red water squirting from a ketchup bottle. However, when it involves a bullet to the head, the splatter effect is great.

Overall, this is a great comedy horror with one kick ass subtext. There is a lot of good campy, gory fun with some great physical performances by the actors and an overall great story line. I would recommend this to anybody who loves horror shorts and it's only 4 minutes, so it's worth it. I think to those who enjoy the theatrical horror films, which are around 1 hour and a half, this is also a great film to view. It's just one of those movies were you can say, "This is why I love horror movies."
