Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The short is loud and glitzy and full of musical angst, as the anti-hero begins to wonder if killing people is all it's cracked up to be. So of course, he and a chorus of bloody victims break into a song and dance number! When I saw this short film for a purported musical based on THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE, I really wish it had been a real musical, not a comedy short. That's because the concept is so bizarre and unusual that I might have been tempted to see it for myself! Heck, weirder things have made it to full-length films or stage (such as the off-Broadway plays, THE EVIL DEAD or BAT BOY). I hope someone sees this silly little short and runs with the idea! Cute idea and definitely weird--this short is well worth a look and is a funny little idea.
So see this film, try the Spike TV website--it has a bunch of shorts including this one.
