Le Bourreau des innocents
This is the tale of a young, good looking girl out for a camping trip in the middle of nowhere quite alone. Unfortunately she steps into the wrong field and her trip takes a turn for the worse.
This is another film that takes the standard horror cliches and turns them into comic moments. However where this differs from the other similar shorts in the festival competition is in the horror. Despite the comedy the film delivers a nice scare and a bucket of blood.
There's also a great piece of animation used to show the main focus of the short at work. This adds to the tension and the question continually running through the audiences minds, how will she get out of it.
Despite some far fetched moments you'll easily keep on through them as they are played as comicly as they are darkly.
The actress is great and gives a natural performance, as well as showing strong comic timing.
The ending will have you cursing at the screen as I certainly was, but you'll love it just the same.
