On a drab and rainy day, unbeknownst to him, a farmer traps a group of snails who will soon find themselves in a healthy green salad, deep in the bowels of a terrifying kitchen. Inevitably, if the hapless molluscs want to survive, they need to come up with a fail-proof plan for their safe escape, and as the clock is ticking, race as quick as they can towards their freedom. But is that even possible? Written by Nick Riganas

Unrelentingly mean and nasty...and I like it!
7 March 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Escargore" is a cute AND disgusting AND rather nasty little short film by Oliver Hilbert. It has surprisingly nice graphics and Hilbert seamlessly blends computer generated characters with real life scenes of a kitchen. In this kitchen...a group of cute cartoon snails that have no idea they're on the menu! And, one by one, these cuties are killed off or accidentally kill themselves.

So what do I like about the film? Two thinks...the animation and the nasty spirited script...seriously. As for the CG, it looks amazingly professional...not the work of a guy directing his second short film. As for the nasty humor, I actually loved how the characters were cute but the film never resorted to a happy ending or sentiment. It was edgy and funny...and I'd like to see more.
