Short Film: Work Sucks!

This is a 2019 short film directed by Chris Ruppert and coming in at 15 minutes. It is played for laughs and thus the rubber body parts and laughable fangs actually work within the farcical concept. As the film starts, however, we get a huge amount of screaming and said body parts appearing.

A phone call wakes a man (Ian Anderson) and, receiving an address, he gets ready to go to work. He is a cleaner of blood and gore and he zips his coverall above a I Had a Bloody Good Time at House Harker tee-shirt then heads to the basement, where a slaughter has taken place.

Aj Nutter as Renfield
There is some time taken with the cleaner playing with body parts as he cleans the mess until, eventually, he notices something he shouldn’t have missed – a whole body. He gets out an electric saw and takes a hand, when the man (Aaron Ruppert) comes round; not dead at all. His existence is soon known by the boss, Dr Acula (Chris Ruppert), who sends flamboyant vampire Renfield (Aj Nutter) over to help with the disposal…

To get an idea of just what could go wrong, take a look at the short, which I’ve embedded below. The imdb page is here.
