Horror Comedy is either beloved or loathed. Not everyone is into it, but I do enjoy it. John Landis’ films always made me very happy and the The Bloody Ballad of Squirt Reynolds was 90% Comedy/10% Horror. If you have 8 minutes to spare, this is a good way to spend those precious moments.
There is a group of maybe campers or counselors or vagrants from the 70s, 80s , or maybe the 90s? Anyway, they’re in the woods around a campfire. Ned (Nathan Hoffman) is playing on a number of instruments the corniest songs ever; I mean beyond Nickelback. He tells the story of a disfigured camper who people called Squirt. In order to hide his disfigurement, he wore a Burt Reynolds mask; hence, Squirt Reynolds. Anyway, Squirt Reynolds gets pranked, swears revenge, yada yada yada.
Then, the horror begins in the short and it is pretty gross and fun. I would give it watch and over a ham sandwich or nice snack. In a lot of ways, a good short is like a good snack.
