HELL-BENT ON HAVOC

For this opening scream, what could possibly be more appropriate than summoning this harum-scarum cherub that ditches the divine will like a moth-eaten frock (or an "unplugged" BB Brunes session)? Although not always named out loud, the covert demeanor of this fallen angel ransacking these hellfire narratives simply cannot be denied: the ill-fated whose mishaps you will be witnessing have a cent to divide with the forces of evil (and far be it from penny-pinching Satan to renounce any part of its share). The cinematographic chutzpah with which these fragile souls are put through the wringer is of obnoxiously-entertaining taste that mustn’t be shared with the little ones; it is, therefore, best to leave them all nice and cozy at home (with a stash of crayons for pentacle-scribbling fun or a game of darts by way of quality cat-and-kid bonding time). Whether this pompous degenerate be of theological make-believe or not, you will scarf these stories down with just-plain-wrong plenitude. Let it be known, though, that your seemingly harmless infringement may just leave you stranded outside the pearly gates.

CHAOS

Samuel Auer, 4 min 59 sec, 2019, Germany

Chaos is a one-shot fairytale about the Devil. A hobo, a jogger, two thieves and a bag full of money are the key components. Like satanic verses that are understood but when read backwards, Chaos, too, will have you doubling back.
