What it is: Very short horror movie

A man whose car has broke down has an encounter with a psycho.

This short little experimental runs just under two minutes, and was added to my suggestion list as an example of one of those obscure little movies that has fallen through the cracks. It’s probably only marginally horror due to the fact that it’s so succinct it doesn’t provide us any motivation for why the killer does what he does. Still, one does have to admire the efficiency of telling a miniature little cinematic story without sound. It makes for an enticing little curiosity.
