Why Watch? Silly and cheerful, this joyous horror short from writer/director Stephen W. Martin sees a bullied little girl try to grow a friend from a formerly used body part. It’s Mary Shelley’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

There are definitely some lost gambles here (and a little bit of low budget shining through), but overall the bombastic nature of the sound design and music, paired with some unorthodox camera options make it a fun, semi-ridiculous jaunt that presents jump scares like a fresh bouquet of flowers. It’s not at all scary, but that doesn’t mean it’s not bloody.

If it were only possible to have David Cronenberg in a crushed velvet suit introduce this one.

What will it cost? Around 10 minutes.
