The Sum of Several Sticky Situations involving Salami Sticks

An offbeat comedy about a butcher’s quest for justice.
4/5

Review

Oli Stening”s short film is a delightfully wacky horror film that takes viewers on a hilarious and absurd journey centered around the theft of salami sticks from a cop, played by Ben Corlett. Set in Sydney, Australia, the narrative is packed with eccentric characters who add to the film’s unique charm.

Stening himself shines in the role of the sinister butcher, whose quest for justice on behalf of the cop drives the storyline forward. Jarrod Barling and Adam Dean deliver fantastic performances as the dumb stoner surfers, bringing a comedic flair to the film. Steffi Gil’s portrayal of the outlandish vegan, desperate for service at the butchers, adds even more layers of humor to the mix.

The film’s eccentric, funny, and witty nature, combined with its production quality and fantastic cinematography by Simon Watts, makes for an entertaining ride. Stening’s direction and the overall acting are great, and the film strikes a fine balance between being utterly silly and not taking itself too seriously.

Revenge serves as the main theme, but it is carried along with a generous dose of silly humor that keeps audiences engaged and chuckling throughout. The absurdity of the film works to its advantage, making it a highly enjoyable experience for those seeking a lighthearted and laugh-inducing viewing.

Overall, the short is a highly entertaining and provides a hilarious escape from reality. With its quirky characters, great acting, and well-executed production, it delivers on its promise of being an eccentric, funny, and witty horror-comedy that is sure to leave viewers amused and craving more.
