Watch as a janitor cleans a toilet. As mundane as this sounds it is actually rather good.
21 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Watched this short and have to say it was rather entertaining. Though I would not have called this movie a horror movie. There is very little in this short that is horror, only a scene here and there. Most of the film is watching a rather likable janitor clean a toilet and talk about his life and strange things like that. Then the movie ends in rather bizarre and confusing fashion. This kind of took away from the short a bit, but then most of the short was irrelevant, the only constant was the one toilet that seemed to get filthy almost immediately after it was cleaned cause it was just as bad after his lunch as it was before he cleaned before his lunch. The guy playing the janitor was rather funny and likable and that helped as the entire movie was focused on him and his little talks with the occasional there is more to this than just cleaning a toilet moment. It is shot well, and it is very humorous too. Like I said my only complaints are minimal as I would rather not see this listed as a horror film, and I though the ending was a bit out there and did not really explain how it arrived at that moment or the janitor's last line. Still it is most certainly worth a peek as they have the full movie to see right here at IMDb.
