Short Shrift Theater: Abe

Waking up in a serial killer’s kill room is pretty crappy but when that serial killer happens to be a robot it gets just a bit creepier than you could possibly imagine. That is what we get in the short film ABE where a servant robot with severe emotional problems takes to murder to try and find out why no one loves him. The concept is insanely inventive and the execution is great especially the overly calm British voice of ABE that sounds like Paul Bettany or Jude Law after taking mood stabilizers.
Hollywood must think this is a pretty novel concept too since MGM has acquired the rights from creator Rob McClellan to make a feature film based on this short.
