Short Film of the Day: The Tell

Why Watch? Because when one genre turns into another, things get crazy.

This short begins with two bloody-handed men playing a game of the highest stakes poker possible. The dialogue is soaked in whiskey, a little itchy, and it’s surrounded by dankness.

Then, at the 1:05 mark, things change drastically and awesomely. This might not be for everyone (in fact, it’s guaranteed not to be), but even if it doesn’t light your fire, you have to admire the brass buttons on this thing.

What Will It Cost? Just 6 minutes of your time.
