So this is what happens when you close the refrigerator door!
23 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Meltdown" is a wonderfully silly and original short film from David Green. It's about the adventures of your food in your refrigerator when you close the door! Yes, they have adventures...and the food is anthropomorphic! It talks and even moves. The reason the food starts talking is because the refrigerator is getting too cold--so cold that the food is starting to freeze. So, it's up to our brave heroes, the wise celery and the valiant plate of spaghetti to save the day--as each try to turn the dial down to warm up the fridge!

The stop-motion animation is very nice and the voices work well. But, most importantly, the weirdness is the star--and the weirdness make it quite endearing. Worth seeing. And, if you do, watch through the credits or you'll miss something.
