WORLD OF DEATH Ep. 104 – The Meal / Munchies

I assume you can guess the theme of today’s episode. No, it’s not the letter ‘M’. Live to eat or eat to live? What type of person are you?

First up is Henry Colin’s short THE MEAL. A man awakens to find he is the member of a dinner party he wishes he could have RSVP’ed to. I remembered being drawn to this short initially because of the vibrance in the imagery. I believe this is a project Colin created while in school (partially evident in the age of the cast and the set), and if that is the case, I wish I had had access to equipment like this when I was in school back in the day. Props to Colin for capturing my attention out the gate! I can’t say I truly know what is going on throughout the duration of The Meal, but I can certainly speak highly of the final moments of the short as salad is served. Makes me think twice about ordering a vinaigrette!

After a long day of hard work – or maybe sitting on his ass playing video games – a run-of-the-mill stoner empties his bong and burns a joint in MUNCHIES, directed by David Dawson. What happens next should be every druggies nightmare! Granted I’ve never been so f&*ked up that I would go to the extent of this guy’s plight, I guess he just got too wrapped up in his feeding frenzy for his own good. Munchies is a comical, yet slightly dismal look at the bad things that can happen when your mind is not entirely your own. Take a hit of this advice folks!

That’s all for today kids. Smoke ’em if you got ’em!

    Agreed. There is something particularly striking about The Meal. Everything is just a bit office (obviously the semi-dead dinner guest, but the artwork also lends a very surreal quality to the short). Thumbs up!
