Suicide Brothers Now Available on iTunes

The Continuing and Lamentable Saga of the Suicide Brothers is now available for download on iTunes in the UK, US, Canada, Germany, France and Ireland.  As of now it is #2 on the US iTunes list for Short Film Sales!

Here are a couple of reviews of the film:

"Rupert Friend and Tom Mison are delightfully morbid as these two gents who just want to end their lives in spite of living on something of a beautiful however haunting landscape where snow is abundant and boredom is infinite. Richard Van Den Bergh's visual effects are masterful serving to compliment some awe inspiring set design and brilliant landscapes that add that touch of whimsy and tongue in cheek lore that keeps "The Suicide Brothers" on the verge of being confused with something from Tim Burton in his prime. The ultimate fate of the brothers is predictable but delivered with such grotesque performances from the two men that it's quite harrowing to endure. When all is said and done, "The Suicide Brothers" is a hypnotic film, one so possessive of hypnotic and compelling material it will have you sitting right through the unusual German dance number performed by Friend and Mison. I guarantee you that final song will be in your head for literal hours." -- from Cinema Crazed

 

"With the lederhosen and the Czech music at the end, it has kind of an unsettling Grimm Brothers in Eastern Bavaria feeling to it. It’s definitely more a piece about tone than character or plot. If nothing else it’s lovely to look at." -- from Living in Cinema
