Curio Shop : A Post Apocalyptic Acid WesternPosted in 2014, Science Fiction, Short Films, USA
Everything and everyone in this world is broken–even time. What starts as a rather whimsical and Mad Hatter-esque story about a watchmaker who has no concept of time, slowly grows darker and more disturbing with each scene, descending through the looking glass to a place where characters transform and harden.
Oliver and John are two lonely survivors in a decayed frontier, drawn inexorably together by a web of shattering family secrets. When the watchmaker fashions a bizarre weapon for John, it opens a surrealistic Pandora’s Box, engulfing everyone in a fever dream with no clear exit.
Robert Scott Crane and Christopher Sweeney star in this hallucinogenic fable by EMMY winning Director Eric S. Anderson, Academy Award winning DP David Stump A.S.C., and writer Zoe Taylor.18 minutes
