The Basque filmmaker Paul Urkijo has become a reference in the short movie industry. His works have been selected and awarded worldwide. He tends to join horror and fantasy elements with other genres as documentary (MONSTER DO NOT EXIST) or comedy as he does in PLAYING WITH THE DEATH, a 5-year-old movie that help hi be a regular at cinema fests.
A very funny short, in which Black humour and horror are mixed in a very intelligent way, as if Rafael Azcona has written an episode of TALES FROM THE CRYPT. Txema Blasco part of the film must be highlighted as he is a great actor and a legend in the Basque short movie scene.
