TEDDY: HE'S BEARY SCARY

TEDDY: HE'S BEARY SCARY
(11minute short)

Alternate Title:
Teddy: It's Gonna Be A Bear

USA, 2011
Director: Steve Goltz

7/10







"Teddy" is a wonderfully entertaining little homage to classic 80s slashers about a few teens on a camping trip and Teddy, a mentally retarded killer (equipped with a balaclava and a teddy bear) that reminded me a bit of Charlie from "The Night Brings Charlie".

The acting could have been a bit better at times and the plot is a bit too unoriginal - apart from that, I highly enjoyed it. It's tense, atmospheric and diverting from the first to the last minute. Cinematography and camera work are beautiful, the editing is excellent and the chilling score is powerful and effective. Teddy is an impressive-looking villain and his kills are all hilariously gruesome (anal tiki torch, axe in face, shovel through head).

 
Highlights: Mike Goltz as asshole Clay, a hilarious character who constantly burps and drinks beer, and the super-funny 'Papa Bear' sex scene.

Overall, a cool and well-made debut short. I'm already excited for Steve Goltz and script writer Kevin Sommerfield's upcoming "Popularity Killer"
