The Short Stack: Death Rides a Unicorn

Posted By on Mon, Aug 26, 2013 at 1:36 PM

This Must Be the Only Fantasy Dir: Todd Cole Runtime: 13m The Creators Project This is probably my favorite of the short films I've seen so far this year. After leaving a weekend RPG hangout because their friend Trevor (Elijah Wood) flaked out on them, Lora (Sidney Williams) falls, dropping her 12-sided die. When she gets back up the world is a difference, darker place -- the place of her RPG. As she treks through her neighborhood to find Trevor (guys, she's riding on a unicorn on this trek), she is confronted by demons and helper spirits that guide her past the dark rider who is out to harm her. It's so, so good, and the score is by Beach House.


Deathinger Dir: Tzu-Hsuan Fei Runtime: 6m (Source: i09) In any school -- even a school for where the offspring of the avatars of worldwide death (the Grim Reaper, Anubis, Yin and Yang) go to learn their trade -- there is always the sensitive one who wants to make the world a less scary place.


Peanut Butter Lips Dir: Jamie Hooper Runtime: 2m (source: Must See Shorts) A boy (Arne Cunningham) tries to figure out what kind of sandwich a girl (Mia Baker) likes after she agrees to kiss him if he is up to the challenge.
