User Reviews

Hilarious and grisly
31 October 2003 | by gut-6See all my reviews

Possibly the funniest short I've seen. This short concerns an aspiring serial killer who bears more resemblance to Inspector Clouseau than Jeffrey Dahmer, and really should have stuck to his day job. Gory but hilarious. A must-see if you can find it. High production values.
