Freaky Reindeer Games

Saturday 9 April 2011

“Animal Control” is a short feature about a guy (we never learn his name) who works as an animal control officer, picking up dead animals from the roads, cleaning out cages, etc. Oh, he’s also a taxidermist and occasionally brings done work home with him. His life changes when one of his finds turns out to be not-so-dead. It’s a disturbing piece that turns melancholy. Not in competition, but recommended if you can find it online.

The main feature in this pair, “Plains Love”, is really twisted. A man is on the way to meet a woman about to be released from prison. He had been corresponding with her for quite a while. But on the way he meets The Transient, and things go very, very wrong. It’s a little bit “Fargo” and a little bit Stephen King. Recommended, 3.5 out of 5.
