Treevenge Is Like Revenge…But With a Tree


Do you did watch that awesome Hobo With a Shotgun grindhouse trailer that surfaced a year or two ago? Well, the dude who made it is back with the 16-minute film Treevenge, which… is about Christmas trees getting back at the bastards who chop them down every year. If you don’t immediately understand that as awesome, I’m really not sure what else to tell you other than that there’s a serious amount of blood in this thing. I promise there’s no better way to end your day that watching trees kill people. Thanks to the fine folks of Twitchfilm for alerting me to this arborcidal masterpiece.
