Storyline

Unlike most murders that usually last for seconds or even hours, for the first time in the fabulous history of cinema, this premeditated, peculiarly cold-blooded and utterly merciless one, lasts for years. To be more specific, at first, it started as an unobtrusive annoyance, but shortly afterwards, it became a genuinely dreadful and sticky threat, forcing the hapless Forensic Pathologist Jack Cucchiaio to run for his life. The menace: A feral omnipresent entity that never sleeps, never forgets, and above all, never forgives. The weapon of choice: An exceptionally ineffective old-fashioned spoon. Chances of survival: None. Written by Nick Riganas

Funniest!
28 October 2008 | by Graham-joeySee all my reviews

I saw this short at Fantastic Fest, and me and a friend of mine could not stop laughing. And did not until the end of the next short, which was a bit rude I suppose, but we couldn't help it. The concept reminded me of the Family Guy system of joke, in which you beat it to death (literally) until it's funny again...only in this, they go further than anything I've ever seen with that concept, and it just keeps getting funnier as they come up crazier scenarios that would obviously have to take place over the course of a 10 year murder.

If you are anywhere and this is playing. You need to make it a priority.

I need a copy of it!
