On a silent, chilly night, outside the front yard of a loving couple who is having a Thanksgiving dinner party, a car with two mysterious men parks. Inside the car, the two aspiring armed burglars begin talking about the invasion strategy, but before anything else, they first need to decide on a fearsome attire. There, now everything is ready for some serious business and nothing shall stand in the way of the determined axe-wielding duo. Nothing, except for their bumbling clumsiness.Written by
I am not a fan of gore for the sake of gore; don't like it in any genre normally – and I think horror movies generally have become less and less interesting the more they focus on lingering shots of bloody violence and sadism. However, I actually really enjoyed this short film – which seems to use more fake blood than any other resource. The plot sees a Thanksgiving home invasion starting out with a debate over masks, and end up with something entirely unexpected. The first half of the short is witty in its dialogue and also some elements of the visual delivery. This sets a certain tone which I quite liked and made me feel like I was on ground that I knew. The second half was almost more enjoyable as a result of flipping this with a sudden moment of violence which is excessively absurd but yet funny.
It is the type of short I really shouldn't like, but it is hard not to enjoy it for what it does and the manner in which it does it.
