Storyline

Summer is over, the day-olds are a day older, and it's business as usual at the struggling donut shop on Drury Lane. Chad, Jane, and the rest of the staff have no idea that the shop's former proprietor - serial killing baker, Desmond Bailey - is about to return to the scene of his original crimes. Deformed, enraged, and possessed by a malicious demon, Bailey is more dangerous than ever. It's up to Hank, the grizzled detective who ended the baker's first killing spree, to convince the staff of the imminent danger. Will they heed his warnings before it's too late, or suffer a delicious demise at the hands of the menacing murderer with a massive muffin for a head? The heat is on, the timer is set, and a new evil is on the rise! Written by Anders J. Svensson

silly... but cute
13 December 2006 | by mxrcxdxsSee all my reviews

This short film seemed very much like a student production. However, though clearly amateur in nature, the film had its funny moments. The screenplay, music, acting and production were all quite noticeably put together by a novice filmmaker, but slasher/horror cinema is the best forum to expand ones visual vocabulary. All of these elements held together fairly well to create a coherent little picture. Furthermore, the dark humor of food and gore was great. The film intentionally doesn't try to be serious.

At the same time, I waited for 40 minutes for Frank Zappa's "Muffin Man" to come on, but to no avail. The movie seems like it was "specially prepared" for this film.
