Graveyard

Why Watch? A pitch-perfect spoof of 80s action films (that only falters slightly when it says the phrase “80s action movies”), this excellent short is a great example of how taking something that’s silly seriously can result in a lot of laughs. Facing their toughest challenge yet, a group of warriors has to infiltrate a terrorist cell that has one of their own’s brother held hostage. It’s going to be dangerous, but not that dangerous, because they’re all on a paintball course. The camera work and the too-gruff acting are both excellent, but the ridiculous score is the real standout, punctuating most scenes with a towering faux-poignancy. Plus, I have no idea what kind of accent the bad guy is going for, and that’s a good thing. All in all, a very fun little action flick. What will it cost? Around 6 minutes. Skip Work.
