Mime Massacre

No secrets here, just plenty of mime-blood and violence. Colin Decker’s six-minute short is not so much an attack on mimes as it is just exploring the pure joy in torturing imaginative mutes. All set in a mime’s studio, enter a rural-Ontarian with an enormous chip on his shoulder, surround him with a gang of different mime-types and watch the violent reaction occur. Decker doesn’t skip out on the gore either, taking great pleasure in the myriad ways in which he cuts, dismembers and detonates these pale-faced bastards. As the film begins we are left with an ominous warning that “a wild imagination can be a dangerous thing.” Words to die by. (James King)

Dir. Colin Decker
