M is for Mousetrap

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 Mousetrap from Craig Stewart.

This manic short features a man driven mad by the presence of a mouse in his cereal boxes. With quick, smooth editing, it manages creepy comedy alongside the kind of tension built by pulling back (sweat forming on your forehead) the neck-breaking wire to its linchpin. Plus, you wouldn’t want to be neighbors with our hero, and the final bit of gore is absolutely fantastic.

What Will It Cost? Around 3 minutes
