If the gushing rivers of blood in these claymation shorts can make your stomach churn, just imagine how you’ll react while viewing the live-action film that inspired them.
We’re excited to exclusively debut these shorts by animator Lee Hardcastle, whose work appeared in The ABCs of Death. Each features exaggerated versions of The Belko Experiment’s characters, and offers a taste of the level of violence and humor you’ll see when the actual movie—a messed-up horror thriller from the mind of James Gunn—opens in theaters. It’s about what happens when a seemingly average corporate office suddenly shuts down and a mysterious voice begins demanding that the employees start killing each other. It’s a situation that drives people to madness pretty quickly, and as these short films illustrate, it doesn’t take long for things to get totally gruesome.
Check them out. But beware—even though they’re rendered in claymation, they’re very gory, and might be considered NSFW.
The Belko Experiment opens March 17.
