The “Mahna Mahna Killer” Short Film is the Best

    What an excellent example of how to be creative with little and make a killer short film.

    Pun most definitely intended.

    The film’s blend of comedic moments mixed flawlessly with it’s more suspenseful moments, all with no dialogue, shows how thinking outside the box can really pay off in the long run.

    The film is simple enough. The opening grips you, with the first-person view of the captive man coming to terms with his situation. There’s the moments before the hostage is about to be shot that seem to drag, keeping the viewer in constant suspense.

    We are drawn into the suspense, it seems like a really dark short film. But then comes the comedic surprise. I don’t want to give away what happens, you gotta watch it for yourself.

    But I will say the filmmakers accomplished more in a three-minute scene than a lot of movies accomplish in two hours. This is a great example of how brilliant simple stories can be.

    They don’t have to be complicated to be good. You just need to be creative with what you are given.
