Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.18.11] post apocalyptic movie trailer news musical comedy



I've really dislike musicals. In fact the only musical I've even remotely enjoyed was Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, but even then I wanted to fast forward the songs after four bars. It's weird, because I like music (even play it) and I like movies, so why don't I like the two together?

In Sudden Death, a short film written and directed by Adam Hall, Los Angeles has been overtaken by a virus known as "Sudden Death Syndrome," a disease that causes its victims to die suddenly and has only one symptom... spontaneously breaking into well-choreographed song and dance.

I think Hall is banking on a viral sensation akin to Wheddon's Dr. Horrible. It certainly exudes the same kind of colorful charm. It's not nearly as funny as it thinks it is though and I have my doubts whether or not it will live up to its own idea of what makes it "clever." Then again, John Larroquette is in it wearing a captains hat, so what do I know from comedy?
