The title character in this film short starts out with the same mystique even if, like a doll, he is strangely docile. The lawless gang he is peripherally part of engages in various acts of crime and self-abasement arranged and instigated by the leader, Pope, who implies that the real rainmaker is Voodoo Doll. Tagging along with this ragtag collection of aimless, drug-addled minions is the sardonically named, Joy, who is by default attached to one thug, Dex, but who is intrigued by Voodoo Doll. The scarecrow-like wool ski mask he wears creates most if not all the foreboding mystery until the flashbacks begin. Here we learn that Voodoo Doll is in fact the Verso-Voodoo Doll - stick a pin in him and all the horror stays and boils within. The ending can go one of two ways and it matters greatly to the overall success of what is a simple story of sadness and repressed trauma. It appears that the correct choice is made. Like the scarecrow (and the verso-voodoo doll) looks and street cred can be deceiving. Written by Evan Bando See less
