HARUM SKARUM: The Most Horrific Child’s Game Of All Time.
A dirty black box arrives in the mail. Inside you find a HARUM SKARUM set – a collection of homemade masks, trinkets, little weapons, maybe some fireworks, and a deck of cards that dare the players to commit worse and worse stunts. (“Take a photo of yourself, looking murdered. Send it to the last person you called”). No two sets are exactly alike. Each player dons a mask and lies, cheats, steals, and burns as many bridges as possible in an effort to take away the other players’ masks.
A short film by Blackmagic Rollercoaster, made to look like an ad for a board game. Can you name the film the music is from?
