This is an absolute hoot of a short. From the moment the Hapless Hero steps in the inexplicable goo on the beach you have the sense that this is not going to end happily. And in the grand tradition of early Dr Who stories, and 50s black and white B movies this proves to be the case. The shot of the forlorn green dog collar floating on the surface of this sinister slime adds a hint of menace. Our hero's apartment and the answering machine message from his mother establishes him as the perennial loser, the guy that things happen to. In spite of the fizzing and the goo, and the moments of grossness, this is wickedly funny. Could be a little tighter, and HH could have been either a little more or a little less of a loser. He did at times hover dangerously in the zone of limbo.
