Two girlfriends decide to stay in and watch a movie. At the same time they both get friend requests on Facebook from someone called MurdR and when they accept suddenly they find that he has checked in at their address, which means the friend request came from inside the house. They run and hide but it is too late, he is already in their Tumblr and Grooveshark and time is running out for them.
Although it is very short, the film benefits from its brevity and its quick pace because the joke is essentially replaying a serial killer a la Scream but using social media. So we see the killer employing social networking to get at the two girls. Part of the humor comes from the juxtaposition of the situation with the pauses to check phones etc and it is funny to see all these familiar sites used in this way. The knife cuts both ways though and the film does have a nicely satisfying punch- line even if it ultimately couldn't have carried the joke for much longer.
The direction of the short is good as it does play it pretty straight as a genre piece, which then allows the humor to clash with this nicely. Guill and MacLachlan are funny and overplay their genre clichés well, although the downside is that once or twice I found their dialogue hard to catch since it was delivered at such a high pitch and speed. It is short and punchy though and enjoyably funny.
