Storyline

In the dusty sun-baked West, in a cheap and smelly old saloon filled with a motley assortment of typical scoundrels, enters a solitary thirsty gunslinger, and although this may be true, he is not entirely alone. Mysteriously, the husky masculine voice of an invisible narrator accompanies the pale and tall gunman on his every step, describing explicitly his next move, revealing more and more, little by little. But why should they trust the "voice", furthermore, as it is widely known that nobody likes spoilers, why won't this all-knowing sadist stop spilling the beans? Written by Nick Riganas

'The Gunfighter' is pretty refreshing little movie. Mysterious gunfighter walks into saloon, and then a voice (smooth and cool narration by Nick Offerman) warns him about creeping danger. Or does it? As all the people in the saloon can hear the voice thus they can hear eachother's thoughts and most deepest secrets, it is soon clear that the mysterious voice just wants to see the bloodbath. Can the saloon patrons out smart the voice and each other?

The jokes are are all shot into the same spot - mostly they have something to do with sex. As the film is barely 9 minutes short the jokes don't get repetitive or stale. Great short film that is definitely worth your time.
