Treevenge (Review)


Treevenge (2008)

Directed by Jason Eisener

Short films are sometimes a hit or miss. But one does come along that works perfectly as a short.

And that short is Treevenge directed by Jason Eisener.

Treevenge is one of the short films online now at the AMD Fantastic Fest Online.

What Treevenge should be called is Treepocalypse. A horror short that works perfectly as a horror-omedy.

Boring Plot-O-Matic

Pine tree "victims" get massively "killed" and sold to the human murderers. But the trees get the last laugh.

Awesome Review-O-Matic

It's a 15 minute short but it's perfectly paced. The familiar eerie Cannibal Holocaust intro music opens up the first scene. The first 10 minutes are the slaughter of our little pine trees. The lumberjacks are evil, maniacally laughing as they chainsaw, ax and chop down these poor, defenseless trees.

Our tree victims talk in "tree talk" some sort of gibberish, baby squealing. Subtitles are added for us to hear them question why they are being holocausted to death.

It is the funniest thing I've seen this month.

Our trees are sold off for the holidays to families, couples unknown to them the trees are plotting their revenge.

Then they mock the trees by decorating them with shit. How much more can the trees take? It's like they are in Abu Gharib. What's next? Waterboarding the trees?

On Christmas morning, the human scum get all fucked up.

And the last 6 minutes are just awesome bloody slaughter. Totally the funniest splatter and gore in a short I've ever seen. From ocular trauma to infanticide. Each gory death made me say yay. (See the Goreipedia for a list of the kills)

The ha ha's are totally clever. We are portrayed as genocidal deviants and the ending makes me want to get an artificial tree for the holidays.

You gotta see this. And it's free. Treevenge is treeFUN!

I think I saw boobies.

WTF moment


The Jaded Viewer's Final Prognosis

I enjoyed Treevenge too. The talking trees were quite amusing, and then it all goes to bloody hell.

Glad to see someone else checking out these online shorts! Did you watch Kingz?

Man, I wish that I had known about this on-line film fest - I so would have tuned in! :-(
(Is this a yearly event?)

Anyway, this sounds like a really Cool short!

Thanks for sharing!

This is a great and funny short, but did anyone else notice the trees are talking in Ewok samples from Return of the Jedi some of the time?

I didn't notice that. Now that its online maybe I should watch it again.

Hilarious. Poor baby trees. They teach them Ewok as a second language?
