Great Short
10 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As of this week my film A LITTLE MOUTH TO FEED will have screened in two shorts blocks with THSMWTEIW, Philly's DANGER AFTER DARK and TORONTO AFTER DARK.

Great short.

It's a great concept that goes for the jugular by not going for the jugular. It really works because the filmmaker goes so far with such a simple ridiculous concept. I mean it mean really, really goes for it beyond the realm of all sanity or reason and the result is brilliant.

I think horror filmmakers are less competitive than other filmmakers, but still, if I'm a "rival" shorts filmmaker screening alongside THSMWTEIW but I'm compelled to go hunt for a bootleg version of it on the internet months later, meaning I'm still thinking about it, then you know it must be a great short.

Excellent concept. Excellent execution. Excellent short. I'd see it again and again ... and again ... and again ... and again, and again, and again, and again, and - those who have seen it know what I'm talking about.
