hi Total Fury guys! loved your short, absolutely godly, best of the short showcase and one of the highlights of the whole festival!! Seemed like it was just gonna be a mini Hostel to start with, then suddenly everything went mental!!!
The Amazing Trousers was awesome too, like a mini Carry On film! and Psycho Hillybilly Cabin Massacre was great, and He Dies At The End was genius - funny all the way, then gives us one of the shocks of the weekend right at the end.
Anyone There? didn't really work for me though, too long and never really got interesting, and Homework was just bizarre, sorry but I didn't like it.
As has been said before, there was a real emphasis on comedy in the shorts, thus The Chest looked out of place cos it was the only non-comedy...although I'm not sure 5 minutes of gratutious baby-mangling would ever go down well.
And that Norman J Warren stuff....well I'd never heard of him before, but after he'd taken the bows in front of everyone, then introduced his co-workers, and subjected us to that introduction with "the zombie", I thought we were gonna get something from a horror master or something like that....but tbh his shorts were really dissappointing and unfunny, and the previous shorts were far better.
