James Franco isn’t just known as the greatest Oscars host of all-time, he’s also an actor. An actor who up until now was the most recent man to portray legendary beat poet Allen Ginsberg on screen. Franco played Ginsberg in the movie Howl, which didn’t shy away from the perceived obscenity of Ginsberg’s works, the fact that there was a lot of drug use going on in the man’s life, or the fact that he was pretty openly homosexual. You have to be comfortable dealing with some pretty risqué stuff if you’re going to accurately portray Ginsberg on film, so it makes sense that an actor as concerned with being artsy and progressive as James Franco would take the poet on. But what’s a little more shocking is the newest actor who is going to be stepping into Ginsberg’s shoes. In the upcoming film Kill Your Darlings the poet is going to be played by none other than… Harry Potter?!

Why Watch? Because the shopping carts won’t be pushed around anymore. From the first text that hits the screen explaining the statistics on blood-thirsty shopping carts, it’s clear that 1) the absurd is taken seriously here and 2) shopping carts are going to try to kill you and eat your flesh. The exposition is nil here, which is great, because all it really demands is the Night of the Living Dead feel matched with the stakes somehow being raised as a few people battle against rogue shopping carts. There might be a deeper meaning here about consumer culture or about the homeless or about treating your mother better or something, but I don’t care to look for it. This short film is hilarious and haunting enough as is. What does it cost? Just 7 minutes of your time. Check out Death Carts for yourself:
