"But what if the serial killer was... a robot?!"
It kind of sounds like the pitch for a fake Seinfeld movie, but it isn't. It's the premise of the short film Abe, and it actually makes a very haunting and compelling story. It would appear that MGM agrees, considering it has just acquired the rights to the project with the hopes of turning it into a feature-length film.
You can watch the short created by Rob McLellan below, and we highly recommend you do. This isn't just some generic horror movie where the killer happens to be made of metal. This is a well-executed, thought-provoking look at obsession and what it means to be human, and it ends with one of the most chilling final lines we've heard in some time.
We're not entirely sure how McLellan is going to stretch this out to a feature film, but we'd love to see him try. It'd certainly be unlike any serial-killer film we've ever seen before.
