Half-Cocked – 2019

Production by: Launch Over

Doctors Grant Kirby (Pat Healy) and Gabriella Flores (Vanessa Benavente) have figured out a secret formula to eternal life. Once injected the dead return to life and will live on seemingly forever no matter what happens to them. Biologically speaking the recently deceased Rudy Collins (Lundon Boyd) is the perfect specimen for their first ever reanimation. Recently dead his body is well preserved for eternal life. Mr. Collins should only experience minor side effects to becoming the world’s first immortal. There’s only one problem, they should have checked his facebook first. Two doctors just achieved their lifelong dream of reanimating the dead. Rudy Collins just achieved his lifelong dream of dying. I’m sorry to tell you, your days aren’t numbered. Sometimes dead is better.

Editor turned first time writer and director Aaron Barrocas with the help of Launch Over duo Sophia Cacciola and Michael J. Epstein awaken the dead in this well-lit, dark comedy. This undead comedy disturbs the dead digging a shallow grave, showing us the deeper meaning of life. Over-the-top stage performances from Pat Healy, Vanessa Benavente and Lundon Boyd take satire to its grave. The comedy isn’t half-cocked literally punching you in the face. While not to my personal comedic taste this light-hearted short film stays fun reminding us the most important lesson of all, keep your politics to yourself.
