When a man gets stuck in a monster costume, the whole village teams up to hunt him down

Short film The Elaborate End of Robert Ebb puts a hilarious spin on the "human turns into a monster" trope. Security guard Robert decides to play a prank on his coworker with a squidy monster suit. But when he can't get the slimy thing off, the townspeople think there's a monster on the loose, and they're not shy about hunting it down.


The Elaborate End of Robert Ebb was directed by Clement Bolla, Fx Goby, and Matthieu Landour.

This reminds me a bit of the episode of Amazing Stories called "Mummy Daddy," in which an actor in a horror film gets a call that his wife is going into labor. The actor is in costume and makeup as a mummy and doesn't have time to get out of it so he just grabs a car and heads off to the hospital. Of course, he encounters trouble along the way (including an encounter with a real mummy) and hilarity ensues.
