Watch Delightfully Deranged Short THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM Now
Director Ryan Spindell and his fellow mad scientists and Trapdoor Pictures have something wonderfully pulpy and more than a little silly to share with us today: Their short film The Root Of The Problem.
I caught Spindell's horror-comedy short a few years back on the festival circuit where it turned heads for its exceptional 50s era production design and gross gags. I am happy to report that the full short is now online for your viewing pleasure just below this here synopsis:
Now go and give it a gander (and just be glad I didn't make any dentist or teeth related jokes).In the candy-colored world of 1950s suburbia, a reluctant young housewife suspects that the friendly neighborhood dentist is hiding a horrible secret. Is it just the anesthesia at work or is there something more sinister hiding below the surface?
