Storyline

The tale of a murderer (Allen) who uses the cover of Halloween night to causally transport his latest victim from the scene of the crime to his final resting place. Wrapping the body in tarpaulin and dragging it through the busy streets of London as a bloody Halloween prop, all goes to plan until an old school mate (Brassington) recognises the murderer and drags him along to a swanky Halloween party nearby, where a chance meeting with a beautiful girl (Tointon) takes his evening on an even bigger turn for the bizarre!

This charming man

"The Body" is a little live action short film that easily stays under the 20-minute mark and was released back in 2013, so it will have its 5th anniversary next year. The director here is Paul Davis and he is also part of the writing team who made this story happen. It is a British production and the title already gives away the horror component a bit, but it is at least as much about the comedy as here we have a young man who murdered a woman and now he drags out her body to take it to the woods. As it is Halloween, everybody thinks the killer has the most amazing costume ever American Psycho style. And things get even better for our "hero" when an old study mate recognizes him and takes him to a party where he meets all kinds of other potential victims. A feast for him. Not just sexually with the really hot female protagonists, but the gang basically leads themselves to the slaughterhouse. The ending is pretty entertaining too with the cops in costume. Overall, a pretty enjoyable little film that's hitting all the right notes really. A great inclusion for a horror film night or to check out during Halloween. But it's worth seeing at any other time of the year too. I give it a major thumbs-up and this was a film with a simple premise executed with a great deal of love to detail that makes it really worth seeing. Don't miss out here.
