Massacrator is a human/cyborg killing machine, who is after a young woman. Luckily Elvis rises from the dead to defend her. What?
This few-minute action thriller by director Pierre Ayoette won't get you bored. Instead, it slaps you in your face right in the beginning and then kicks in the groins. Although there isn't much content to talk about, the aggressive and hilarious twists makes Massacrator a great entertainment. The use of "Elvis" is a bit worn-out decision, but somehow everything just clicks.
Ayoette uses trendy and somewhat unimaginative grindhouse feel in the visual department, but it fits reasonably in the context. The cheap effects and insane plot makes the viewer laughs his/her head off. And if not, the Massacrator will take care of the latter. Yes, there are some gruesome gore and decapitations too.
The soundtrack resembles a lot of Beastie Boys' Sabotage, and it gives a nice rhythm to frantic imagery. Maybe they share same influences, since Sabotage music video was also influenced by 70's & early 80's Z-grade action films?
Massacrator is not clever nor ground-breaking short film of our times - it is just a energetic, pure fun. Next time though, I would like to see a story.
