First Trailer for Pandemic Sci-Fi Comedy Short 'Hell in a Handbasket'
"What could possibly go wrong!?" Jetlag Pictures has debuted the official trailer for an indie sci-fi comedy short film called Hell in a Handbasket, the latest from Canadian filmmaker Lee Chambers. He explains that they made this film "under the same conditions as the Covid-19 lockdowns… Shot in snowy Canada with actor Hoyt Richards (the world's first male supermodel) phoning in his performance via his iPhone 12 from Los Angeles." The short is about a lonely research scientist in the Arctic struggling to live alone in the cold. But with the world failing from a global pandemic, all hopes fall on Dale's shoulders as he represents the last stand for humanity. The tagline is flawless: "It all comes down to Dale… Dale?" Ha. Starring Robert Bryn Mann as Dale, and Hoyt Richards as Dr. Forester. This looks like it might be good, harmless fun! Enjoy.
