Rabbits 1, by David Lynch


"What you saw at the castle on that windy
night... and what you saw at the bridge last night... how I smiled... never utter a word to anyone. If you dare speak of it, I will find you wherever you are hiding, and I will kill you. I will rip you apart. I will shatter your bones. I will eat your flesh. I will drink your blood dry. And I will devour you." — Opening lines

Watched this one today, good stuff. The "score", if that's what you'd call it, sounds very ahead of its time. Reminded me of 70s Krautrock like Kluster. 5 stars!
How many of the shorts have you already seen?

Good stuff, Speling. Thanks for doing this. I'm sure I will check most of these sooner or later.
