Watch Blinky™ Online

Posted by Grey Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Move over Chucky. Terror playthings have a new name.

Irish film director and writer Ruairi Robinson has earlier brought us "Fifty Percent Grey", the animated short film that was nominated at the 74th Academy Awards for "Best Short Animated Film", and the brilliant post-apocalyptic short film, "The Silent City" featuring notable actor Cillian Murphy. With Blinky™, Robinson unleashed a disturbingly unspeakable form of Sci-Fi Horror.

Featuring child actor Max Records (Where The Wild Things Are" as the protagonist in the film, Blinky™, previously known as Bad Robot (evidently so from the poster embedded below), tells the story of a seemingly well-to-do household who had gotten a new robotic domestic helper cum playmate to their kid. Needless to say, shit happens. Big time.

Here's the teaser trailer for those who would like to invest twelve minutes of their time wisely.



And here's the official description, from Vimeo page:

Soon every home will have a robot helper.

Don't worry.

It's perfectly safe.

Written & Directed by Ruairi Robinson

Starring Max Records from "Where The Wild Things Are".

Cinematography by Macgregor

Music by Ólafur Arnalds, courtesy of Erased Tapes


And without further ado, the entire 12-minute short film.

I bet I'm not the only of the opinion that the kid really got it coming. Can't get enough of the murderous robot, check Blinky™ out, dancing his robotic ass off here.

And for those who missed out "The Silent City", the earlier mentioned short film by Robinson, hit the jump to check out the short film in all its post-apocalyptic greatness.
