Why Watch? Sudden Death! is a triumph of concept and execution. In it, a disease spreads through L.A. County that forces people to break into song and die soon after. Two scientists afflicted with Sudden Death Syndrome race against time to fall in love and find a cure. Anchored by sweeping, Broadway-worthy songs and pitch-perfect performances from Matt Lutz and Autumn Hurlbert, it feels a bit like Airplane! and “Urine Town” mixed together with a glorious amount of people falling flat on their faces.

It’s also a special treat for those of us who find the very concept of musicals absurd to begin with. And those who love seeing Doug Jones being awesome.

What will it cost you? Only 19 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
