All is well when a husband and wife discuss politics over a candlelit dinner. That is, until the butler misplaces the wine.
Today we have RAID OF THE VOMIT-BLOOD FIENDS, a short film from 2012 written and directed by R.J. Wilson. Mr. Wilson has a few of these short films to his credit.
This story focuses on Ronald and Barbara Granville (Anthony Ellison, Lisa Bol), a wealthy, conservative, annoying, obnoxious couple preparing for dinner. They make small talk concerning the day’s events and politics all while verbally abusing their butler Geofferys (Adam Wroblewski).
They are rotten, awful people and you want awful, rotten things to happen to them. And they do. Hurray!
The film is a nice throwback/homage to the classic anthology horror television shows from the 80s, specifically shows like TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE or MONSTERS. The story doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it doesn’t really matter. The effects are a little iffy, but that doesn’t really matter either.
It’s just a short, sweet good time and worth the time to watch.
Using my special “short scale” of one to five, being awesome, I’m giving this film 3 wine glasses.
