Short Film of the Day: Death Carts

Why Watch? Because the shopping carts won’t be pushed around anymore.

From the first text that hits the screen explaining the statistics on blood-thirsty shopping carts, it’s clear that 1) the absurd is taken seriously here and 2) shopping carts are going to try to kill you and eat your flesh.

The exposition is nil here, which is great, because all it really demands is the Night of the Living Dead feel matched with the stakes somehow being raised as a few people battle against rogue shopping carts. There might be a deeper meaning here about consumer culture or about the homeless or about treating your mother better or something, but I don’t care to look for it. This short film is hilarious and haunting enough as is.

What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time.
