In Vaulted Halls Entombed
It’s probably telling that I watched both of these and honestly considered not mentioning either of them
Blackbird is about an amnesiac who rescues a woman who’s running from the masked man who held her prisoner. Which probably tells you all you need to know about the “shocking twist” at the end of the film.
In Vaulted Halls Entombed, meanwhile, follows a group of soldiers entering the wrong cave. It was a part of the Love, Death, and Robots cable series, and thus was very well animated. It, also, was very, very dull. That I read the story it was based on probably didn’t help matters. Though let’s also consider I’ve watched Deep Red multiple times and still felt a thrill with that.
So, anyways, both films are well produced, well acted, and, honestly? The stories on the surface aren’t that bad.
It’s just both of them came off as lifeless as hell.
In Vaulted Halls Entombed is the worse in this regard. I watched people torn a part and I. Just. Didn’t Care. It was boring. Not something I associate with the series it’s a part of. Well, more or less.
Both I’d say were good flicks (1.5) that I’m very meh about.

Now in comparison, take this short, which I watched between the previous two (I had such high hopes for In Vaulted Halls Entombed) It’s a badly animated clay flick about a maid defending the people she works for from the Undead. It has absolutely no dialogue, its plot is an excuse for a series of clay gore effects, and it steals music from Twin Peaks. It is as goofy as hell with no scares whatsoever.
This one I love to death.
It’s the bomb.
Before the reboot, this was my most linked video by far. Seriously, it wasn’t even close.
In fact, let’s get that merry-go-round started right now:
I adore this movie.
Does it say something about my taste? Probably. It’s still today’s winner by far.
Calling it great is probably pushing it, but I’m doing it anyway. Chainsaw Maid is great (2.0). I love this little flick (2.0). I does my heart good to see it.
