Episode 80 features two horror shorties for the road. First up is Director Dan Fisk’s M.A.D.D., an inspired revenge tale highlighted by a totally retro, 80’s-inspired aesthetic full of wild synthesizers, Italian horror lighting schemes, comedy and most importantly, gore. It’s a fun ride, but proceed with caution; if you can’t hold your liquor, you may hurl – this one has a full bar… of blood. Bottoms up!
Minibar from filmmakers Sebastian Giese and Stephan Hock is a boozy surreal tale that is both message-driven, and oddly compelling. The camera work is clever and some of the effects pieces are well-designed. It’s a simple narrative, one that utilizes a single set-piece well. Obviously, any narrative that focuses on the dangers of addiction can be shamefully pretentious, but this shortie not only sums up one man’s demons with style, but foregoes any cheap catharsis.
Until next time, bottoms up!
