Incredibly funny and extremely efficient...:)
10 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A hilarious short that is not to be missed, with many laugh out loud gags.

Following his other excellent short CRITICIZED, The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon, takes it's one main gag and finds ingenious ways to keep the laughs coming...

It is also very well shot, and shows that a lot can be achieved with just sheer imagination and hard work instead of money (the film was made for under $1000, which is amazing!)

I hope to be seeing Richard Gale's twisted sense of humor in a feature very soon.
