I've meant to watch this one since I was quite young, but it took me quite a while to actually get around to watching it. Again I was proven to be the fool for this was one of the most entertaining hours I've ever spent! This seriously short film has so much hilarity crammed in that it's hard to believe! Our hero is a pathetic waiter who works at a Beatnik cafe, he's mistreated and decides he needs to break into the art world. He sits and plays with clay and can't really make much of anything. Then he realizes his cat is stuck in the wall, and he tries to get it out, but an accident happens. He soon learns the way to get recognition is by simply covering dead things in clay! Soon his dealer is onto him, but helps him hide his murderous habit! I don't want to ruin any more but seriously it's a laugh riot from start to finish and a fantastic story to boot. This is without a doubt one of the best horror comedies you'll ever encounter so grab it and watch it now!
