The shopping cart. Four wheels, one basket, and tonight, for the closing crew of a small-town grocery store, a blood-splattered aluminum nightmare!
An evil grows, hiding in plain sight. We never give it a second thought, as it carries our groceries and holds our children. Just four wheels and a basket, but forged of aluminum in the fires of hell. Fueled by years of pain and neglect, tonight, it will strike, and the closing crew of a small-town grocery store will be thrust into the fight of their lives against the monstrous devastation of… The Killer Kart!
Not rated. 14:48 run time.
My thoughts… Killer Kart is an AWESOME short film that delivers suspense, horror, gore, screams, and plenty of campy good fun! It’s like Jaws – with more shopping carts! Well, maybe it’s more like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes but with better production values, better writing, better acting and… more shopping carts! I LOVE this film! However, I imagine the ending with Cass looking up after Hale’s warning and finding herself facing by a small horde of killer carts rolling slowly toward her instead of the chaos in the parking lot. Oh, and Christine Rodriguez is adorable! So is Elly Schaefer – in black jeans and Converse no less!
