Funny as hell!
22 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was sitting in my friends room at Chapman U and some guy I've never seen (the director) brings it in to show it off. What happened after that was a dark, sick, funny and great display of film making. Santa has a brother... the kind the family forgets. This brother of his gives gifts too... the gift of revenge. The art design is perfect to accent this dark comedy. Sets and locations A+ also. The DP work and lighting rocked. Direction was great also, they had child actors and they weren't annoying and thats a big accomplishment. I didn't say much as I was watching this and I usually keep a poker face when I watch student films so I don't give the wrong impression off, but it was almost impossible for me to keep a straight face during "Coming To Town". Find a way to get this short, it has m-16s, cussing, drinking, and a midget or two. A+++++
