AtomFilms 'Hellholes'

December 7, 2006 12:18 PM


AtomFilms relaunched its Web site earlier this week. I’ll spend more time there tomorrow and provide a more detailed report. For now, I made a quick visit to check out the new online series that AtomFilms is giving home page center stage to. That’s “Hellholes,” a short horror-comedy funded by AtomFilms Studio that tells the story of a guy who buys a mobile home for one dollar and then finds that it's a gateway to Hell.

I’ll be the first to admit that I disdain horror films, but since this was billed as comedy-horror, I decided to give it a shot. It’s less than four minutes, so it sits in the Internet video watching sweet spot. But the series, which will be continued next month, still feels a bit amateur to me. Is that simply the state that original video content on the Internet today is in? Check out AtomFilms and let us know what you think.
