Of all the movies that play every year at the Sundance Film Festival, it is the shorts that really don’t get enough love. Thankfully, the ‘dance programmers put some of the better shorts in front of certain movies. This brilliant little short, Treevenge, played to the raucous crowds that lined up to see midnight screenings of the Nazi Zombie flick Dead Snow. Treevenge is an awesome slice of horror from the guys at Yer Dead Productions, the same lot that created the now infamous grindhouse trailer Hobo with a Shotgun. It tells the story a group of pine trees who are savagely cut down and sold off to unsuspecting human families as Christmas decorations. Little do these families know about the terror that they are inflicting upon these poor, helpless trees. And even littler do they know about what’s in store for them on Christmas morning. Say it with me — a massacre.

For anyone who loves an alternative holiday story, Treevenge is a glorious little piece of horror heaven. It is bloody, brutal and loads of fun — as you will see from the clip below. I had a chance to meet the creative team behind the short, including director Jason Eisener and producer Rob Cotteril, and I can tell you that its always refreshing to meet a group of filmmakers with such passion for their work. I am certain that while Treevenge is a beautifully executed mini-flick, the best is yet to come from these fine fellows.
