A humble mime who I guess took his chosen art very seriously exacts a very nasty revenge on an obnoxious heckler! I've seen one or two mimes around doing the street thing in my time, I never found them especially frightening, just odd.. I'd have never dreamed of giving one a hard time in the middle of the act though, as it takes a lot of concentration and that mean fat guy should've at least respected that! Sure seemed a bit of a disproportionate revenge though.. The guy pelted the mime with fruit while he was trying to perform, so he gets butchered and turned into a freaking Jack-in-the-box? Well okay, the man did look a lot more cheerful afterwards! So this was clearly a low budget short but it was cute and well put together enough, they adequately set up and paid off the tiny plot for a mere three minutes and it ended with a nice satisfying little kick, what the murderous mime does to the jerk I've seen before in other horror shorts and more effectively, but I thought it was still kinda creepy because the model of the head had a weird look! Decent short, fun to watch as a warm up if you're planning a marathon of similar monster-themed short films, and it was nice to see the neglected mime used in a horror scenario rather than the too-often used clown - certainly worth a wee look!
