Jason Eisener's 'Treevenge' Short Film

Source: First Showing

"Bark: You better believe, it's a killer."

From Alex Billington.

"This is the short film you've all been waiting to see (or I hope)! I first saw Treevenge at Sundance earlier this year in front of the Nazi zombie movie Dead Snow. In retrospect, Treevenge was far superior to Dead Snow, as you're about to see, and is quite possibly one of the greatest horror short films ever made. So what the heck is Treevenge about? Essentially it's about what if all the tress we cut down every year for Christmas finally got revenge on us. Director Jason Eisener deserves some major props for making such an awesome short film and thanks to Twitch you can finally watch the full thing online. Definitely check this short out!"

Treevenge details the experiences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. Clearly, for trees, Christmas isn’t the exciting “peace on earth” that is experienced by most. After being hacked down, and shipped away from their homes, they quickly become strung up, screwed into an upright position for all to see, exposed in a humiliation of garish decorations. But this Christmas will be different, this Christmas the trees have had enough, this Christmas the trees will fight back. Treevenge could be a short film about the end of days for Christmas trees, or perhaps, the end of humanity?
