                                                                                                                               Hey Guys and Gouls , Happys back with another short story for ya, I'm kinda undecided with this one, I've watched it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and i still just don't know.  Despite this film's length of 10 minutes, it overstays its welcome by using a repetitive joke: a strange villain who uses a spoon to kill a man by hitting him with it. Yes, that's mostly what this short film, made as a fake trailer by Richard Gale, is about. The joke's funny, for sure, but when it's done over and over and over ( ok ok i won't put you throught that again  lol) I feel like I get it. The villain starts chasing this man seemingly around the world, which is clever, although the film doesn't go over-the-top enough. Eventually, the man decides to break out the weapons and explosives to kill this villain. Sorry, but I've seen that a little too many times before, like in another short called "Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown". The other jokes in "The Horribly Slow Murderer" are only worth a chuckle and are also sort of predictable. I give Gale credit because I still haven't seen a spoof quite like this one. Maybe you Freaks will find it funnier than I did.
