When Fewdio sets out to do something simple, like a drive in the desert or babysitting or even a simple dinner date, I know they’re going to go all out with it.
And when they presented Dinner Date, doing exactly that, I know they’re going to be just over the top with it. Better yet, they say that Dinner Date is “Based on actual events”, which is usually a red flag of weak sauce to come, but in this case, it’s actually not that bad. See, normally, “based on actual events” is an excuse to make a weak horror movie more powerful, but in Fewdio’s case, it’s already pretty strong stuff so it’s not like they’re just indulging in self-aggrandizement–Fewdio’s offering is already pretty strong by itself, so tacking on the “true story” flag only makes it just a bit stronger knowing something like this already sort of happened.
Of course, with a title like “Dinner Date” from an outfit like Fewdio, giving you a plot synopsis would be both pointless and spoiler filled, as it’s a two minute short that you probably already know how it will end.
This isn’t one of Fewdio’s better titles, mostly because you can see the end coming from a mile away like it’s shooting off magnesium flares with each step it takes. But it’s still a solid entry in the Fewdio lineup, and well worth the two minutes you’ll put into it just to watch them pull it off.
