Sundance is over.
Last week, we posted a video that might satisfy some of you wanting to see the guerilla-made film shot within Disney called Escape from Tomorrow with Missing in the Mansion. Luckily, the organizers know not all film aficionados can attend the film festival (hell, we can’t) so they have made some pretty amazing short films available on YouTube for public viewing. We have gone through and picked the ones that feel like they belong on the site and included the official synopsis and a general thought about the film.
Four uninspired friends try to come up with a terrific idea for how to spend their Saturday afternoon.
Our thoughts: Hilarious. Martin Starr stars in this one and it definitely is a very absurd short that should be viewed immediately.
After a career spend mining his music from the shadows, one fan creates a chain reaction for the lead singer of a black metal band.
Our thoughts: A very interesting piece that focuses on an artist’s perspective when their art is taken out of context.
A young woman and her four-year-old daughter drive across desolated hills. Everything looks fine and they seem to enjoy the ride, until an accident sends them into the nightmare of darkness.
Our thoughts: Children of the Corn meets the prime time to shoot subjects, during a sunset.
Catnip: Egress to Oblivion?
Catnip is all the rage with today’s modern feline, but do we really understand it? This film frankly discusses the facts about this controversial substance.
Our thoughts: A funny take on old preachy anti-drug films that is pretty accurate in emulating the source material.
Love and a severed foot at the end of the world.
Our thoughts: WTF? Limbs ripping off and throats being cleanly cut. Damn cartoons scare me.
When the Zombies Come
At a hardware store in the middle of nowhere fans of the Walking Dead have turned their love of zombies into an obsession which has warped the way they see the store and customers.
Our thoughts: Amateurish production yet the main subject is pretty funny and tends to carry the short. However, the laughs wear off after the first few minutes in the zombie prep montage.
