Honestly, pretty boring stuff. I enjoy surrealist shorts (like Jan Švankmajer), but this is dull and doesn't do anything particularly interesting. The only slight positive is the visual presentation; buckets of blood filmed in black-and-white against a pasty white girl. Still, I was bored out of my skull about two minutes in. Of course, this won't stop countless people from jizzing themselves over its "brilliance" in the reviews, a la "The Emperor's New Clothes".

It must be fucking horrifying to be David Lynch. Just consider for a moment that this is what comes in his head when he thinks of the alphabet. "Davey, can you recite your letters?" "A,B,C,D... Women screaming. E,F,G... Blood everywhere. H,I,J,K... Where did her face go? L,M,N,O,P... Trapped. Q,R,S... Alone. T,U,V... No God. W,X,Y,Z... There is only pain. Only pain."

When Lynch does pure horror, it's the scariest damn thing ever. This is right up there with the most unsettling stuff he's done. Short and empty, but quite effective.

This short film creeps me out. Never has the haunting tune of the alphabet song scared me to my core. Only lasting about 3 minutes, this film by David Lynch raised the hairs on my arms with fright. Disturbing chanting of the alphabet song and a very frightening scene of a a girl bleeding under her white bed sheets, this movie is just disturbing. I've never been one to get into a short film, but this movie was fantastic. No wonder Lynch became a mini celeb. after this movie.

Sesame Street has these short, often animated segments that introduce alphabets, numbers or words. If I didn't know Lynch directed this short, I would still have described this as a Lynchian version of those segments. (The score reflects more of my personal enjoyment, rather than the overall quality of the film; criticker probable score: 67)

Fun way to learn the alphabet. I'll be sure to show my kids this for when they have to learn (but seriously, this is less creepy than some of the Sesame Street alphabet skits from the '70s).
