Storyline

It's the morning after the biggest party of the summer - the animal fancy dress party up at the big house and the aftermath is strewn all over town. Kids, still in their costumes, finally making their way home. Benny wakes up in the back of a car in a deserted car park high up in the hills, as the sun rises. He remembers the drugs, the drink, the dancing and Aaron's stupid Zebra suit. How could they both be wearing the same costume? But there's something else? Something to do with Unicorns, kissing, Lions and cupboards. Written by Anonymous

Good idea with solidly good delivery even if it is on the genre course
20 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Essentially this film is about a load of northern teens who have a party where the unspoken social hierarchy applies, and the next morning they have to deal with some of the consequences of going against that norm. It sounds pretty regular fare and I guess at this level it is pretty much what you would expect. The film manages to rise above this though, due to some good touches. The first is that the script doesn't labour things and indeed it is pretty light on dialogue for the vast majority of the film, instead leaving it to visuals to do the work. I liked this because it felt like things were clear without needing characters to hand me the scenario via unnatural expositional dialogue.

This use of the visual is of course the central concept since all the teens are dressed as animals. Narratively this is for the party they are going to, but it is also part of the character of the film since the type of animals they are tell us something about them and fit the mould of the usual teen drama – with our lower-level guys being zebras, the attractive girl being an unicorn, the main bully being a lion and so on. Okay so it is not amazingly clever in the detail, but it works with the idea well, making a nicely self-contained short teen drama from it, which does what you expect but at least feels quite fresh as it does it.
