'Death Sled II: Steel Belted Romeos' May Be The Craziest Short Film I Have Ever Seen...

Thanks to an anonymous commentator (sign in as a member and tell us who ya are!!!) in a story I ran about The Human Centipede II trailer, I was directed to a link for this awesome short film by director Danny Plotnick entitled Death Sled II: Steel Belted Romeos. With my interests fully piqued, I clicked the Youtube play button and was mystified by the gritty grindhouse-ness of this wonderful 10 minute film. It is absolutely insane... click after the jump to read a synopsis and watch the whole 10 minute film for yourself.





This is what Plotnick had to say about the film on his webpage:

A tale of backwood blacktop mayhem--- Two dimmed-witted, lead footed guidos from Bayonne, New Jersey bust through stoplight after stoplight in their turbo-charged, fuel-injected Pontiac Grand Prix until their mean machine nearly eighty-sixes another hunk of American Steel. And that's just the start of it... A confrontation, an assault, fist-a-flying, and traffic violations. 1990. Super 8. 
Yup... this isn't just another stylized short trying to capitalize on the gritty trend made famous by recent films such as Grindhouse, Machete, and Hobo With A Shotgun. It came out in 1990 and was shot in actual Super 8. That scores major points for me... plus, there are guidos. How can you go wrong with guidos, ever? Give me your thoughts on this sick ass short in the comment section below.
