16. THE REMOVERS
Never mind that this short film is about a team of covert operatives sent out to protect Earth from a hive-like race called The Orlontix who have traveled intradimensional space and infiltrated our society, feeding off the biomolecular lifeforce of humankind because once all that nonsense is explained to us during the opening title sequence, the whole piece goes haywire and you won’t know what the hell is going on other than that you’re watching one of the trippiest shorts ever created.
17. THE RISE AND FALL OF THE LEGENDARY ANGLOBILLY FEVERSON
If Terry Gilliam calls it a “brilliant piece of work,” you pretty much know you’re in for quite a ride. While sitting by a campfire with a friend, a man puts a gun to his head and attempts to blow his brains out but, alas, no bullet. His friend leans over and suggests he listen to his story about a hole in the sky instead of trying to put a hole in his head.
18. SEX, DRUGS & NATALIE PORTMAN (DRUGS)
This may make some Matrix fans indignant, but…fuck the red and blue pills!! How about a pill that allows you sex anytime you want it and with someone you’ve always wanted to do it with? That’s what director Chad Peter comes up with in “Drugs”, the second part of his “Sex, Drugs & Natalie Portman” trilogy.
By all accounts, this movie should be a total failure. It’s a sci-fi film under fifteen minutes long with a budget small enough to have been financed by homeless people … and they’d still have money left over for food. Luckily, none of that detracted from the picture.
20. TIMMY’S WISH
Remember how as a child your parents really pissed you off and you’d get so mad you’d wish they were dead? Timmy of “Timmy’s Wish” knows that feeling all too well. When he’s sent to his room for not finishing his dinner, he prays to “sweet Lord Jesus” for his parents’ demise. In typical movie fashion, he gets his wish. What Timmy wasn’t expecting, however, is that the sweet Lord is actually the guy who killed them.
