Why Watch? Because this short is a display of CGI visuals (the comparison’s to 9 are unavoidable) and story. A voodoo doll wakes up to find himself in danger of being stabbed with a pin through the heart while his fellow dolls wait for their destruction. He must escape and take down the voodoo Priest before everyone dies.
But since we’re dealing with voodoo, is it really just a doll?
The amount of tension this short creates in less than four minutes is astounding, and should be a lesson to any filmmakers out there trying to build drama or make rag-based action.
What Will It Cost? Just 4 minutes of your time.
Does it get better any better than that?
