Wonderfully funny short that mocks and delivers the musical genre at once
20 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although it has been contained to part of LA County, Sudden Death Syndrome (formerly known as Musical Theatre Disease or The Gayest Disease Ever) is killing all in its path – causing song and dance to break out shortly before sudden death. Racing against time, two scientists come together to try and develop a cure, but while the world pirouettes and then dies, the only thing developing is perhaps the early stages of love.

I'm not really a fan of musicals and indeed if asked I would say my favorite one is the South Park film, because it is. However with Sudden Death! we have a short film that manages to deliver a typically big and cheerful Broadway musical (all teeth and high-kicks) while also making fun of those very same things while delivering a plot that is as far from Broadway as possible – so I think you can understand why I mention South Park and why I enjoyed this film so much. The humor throughout is bang on, with a great tone but also frequent specific laughs and silliness.

The music is also really well done although it perhaps relies a bit too much on one song in particular, but it is catchy and even watched "straight" (which is hard to do) it satisfies as an odd musical. The cast really go with the spirit and I enjoyed the appropriately named Lutz and the talented Hurlbert while Doug Jones was an odd find for someone more known for his creatures work. It is all filmed really well with great camera work and direction and importantly very good sound work. Hard to fault for a short film – it is very clever, funny, catchy and charming from start to finish.
