'Dark Knight'-inspired short film 'Carousel' -- who needs the Joker when you've got evil clowns?

Posted on

To promote its new cinema-proportioned TV set, Phillips made a movie. Okay, it’s a short movie. But Adam Berg’s Carousel is one kick-ass short. Clearly inspired by last summer’s Christopher Nolan blockbuster The Dark Knight, this technical stunner depicts a single frozen moment in time by means of a long tracking shot through a tumultuous hospital overrun by a gang of masked bad guys and SWAT team members.One other word of warning: It’s definitely not intended for viewers with coulrophobia (that would be fear of clowns). I don’t know that the clip would persuade me to shell out big bucks for a new TV, but I’d definitely shell out 10 bucks to see a feature film by this Adam Berg fella. What do you think, PopWatchers?
