Why Watch? Punk rockers The Brain Deads are playing an out of towner, but when they show up, the venue looks totally empty. The promotor is a sinister creep, but they take the stage anyway, lose their bass player, have a fan flash them the goods, and keep thrashing even though the majority of the audience is comprised of hell beasts.

By the time an arm gets ripped off, everything seems blood-thirstily clear. These power chord slingers are a human sacrifice.

With reverb from 80s punk classics like Return of the Living Dead, this short from Dan Riesser uses a cool crew of characters, flashy editing and some grisly gore to craft a hell of a good movie. Plus, the song “Lawnmower Massacre” is pretty damned catchy, and the film answer the question of what happened to Luke Edwards, the kid who beat “Super Mario 3″ in The Wizard. Apparently he joined a punk band and got attacked by demons.

What will it cost you? Only 19 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
