Badger's Paw

"Be Carefull What You Wish For!"
4 stars

This is an interesting little movie with a twist. It's a short film, only 23 minutes in length, but there are quite a lot of goodies packed away in this short tale. As a rule, I like indie films; originality is fun, even when it doesn't quite come off as planned, and this film is no exception.

Robert (Jeremy Rimmer) isn't getting laid as often as he'd like... Actually, to be honest, he's not getting laid at all. And that fact seems to be pissing him off. To make matters worse, the only girl he has a shot with (Catherine Black) is about as hot as an ice cube in the North Pole.

While he and a friend are moving some furniture, an old book falls to the floor. Leafing through it, Robert discovers that the old tome is in actuall fact an old Celtic spell book.

Eager to find a way to break his celibacy, Robert finds a spell that calls for the use of a Badger's Paw. According to the book, if one takes a badger and kills it with a silver hammer, and then places its dismembered paw under the bed of a loved one, within twelve hours things will begin to heat up in the loin area.

Or so the book says.

Robert follows the spell, placing the paw under the bed, and damned if he doesn't get more than he bargained for.

For a short film, this is a top notch piece of filmmaking. The camera work doesn't always look too professional, but hey, we don't all have millions of dollars at our disposal to make every shot a Citizen Kane spectacular.

This movie is available for online viewing and download, along with hundreds of others, for just $9.95 per month at http://www.cinemanow.com - and from what I can see, it's well worth the money. Along with Badger's Paw, you'll find oodles of indie films, a spattering of shorts, some documentaries, some straight to video flicks, and many premium titles besides. If you're looking for something a little bit different, and your local Blockbuster has nothing new that interests you, give it a try. At $9.95 a month, it's hardly a risk.
