NOT WHAT I WANTED TO WAKE UP TO: Short About Blinkyâ„¢ The Creepy Pet Robot

March 21, 2011


This is a must-watch movie short (~13-minutes) about a boy who gets a pet robot named Blinky. Shit goes straight south from there. It was written and directed by Ruairi Robinson and stars Max from Where the Wild Things Are (which took some serious liberties with the original dialogue). It's terrifying to say the least. Literally -- THE LEAST. I already had a nightmare about stabbing a friend to death with Neptune's trident and then I wake up to this. Wonderful. I would've rather woken up in the middle of a Saw movie with my nuts dangling in a food processor.

Hit the jump, stick it to the man for 13-minutes, then spend the rest of the day cowering under your desk with a letter opener.

Thanks to Allesandro, Alejandro (what are the chances?!), wes g and Verity fiction, who are all smart enough to know 'robot friend' is an oxymoron.
