Synopsis: Two men dispose of a corpse at a remote location.

No back-story is given and the killers’ motivations are vaguely establish at best. With the weight of this production resting squarely on the shoulders of its two protagonists Peter and Paul, two cold blood killers’. Also who their unnamed victim is and what his connection to them is never fully established.

Instead this film focuses more on its two protagonists moralistic views on what they have just done, kill a man. Of course things would quickly fizzle out if they both saw eye to eye. Fortunately to this film’s credit these two characters offer up two distinctly different point of views, that are both equally compelling.
Though the characters are only given a limited amount of room to evolve. Performance wise the cast does a very good fleshing out their characters.
Far too often short films can be a double edged sword. And trying to convey as much as you can in a very limited amount of time can be difficult task. Clocking in at around seven minutes, Bad Things serves up many interesting answers and at the same time it leaves just as many questions left unanswered.
