Short Film of Death: ‘M is For Math’ is a Throat-Ripping Take-Home Test

M is for Math Short Film

Why Watch? To celebrate The ABCs of Death 2‘s search for the second 26th director, we’re posting 13 contest entries for 13 days. All of which start with M is for.

Today’s is Math from Adrián G. de la Peña.

Smarter than most of the other entries in the competition and a far-too-accurate representation of how most of us feel about math tests, this dark comic short channels a bit of Hellraiser and Saw by means of your algebra teacher. Simple and unpolished with a crazy madre, the gore is wince-worthy, but the ending is telenovela-style priceless.

What Will It Cost? Around 2 minutes

Vote for M is for Math here.
