Love Really Is Strange

Atom Films has a collection of short films that they categorized as “Twisted Love Stories”
Their description is unique and sums up what this is all about quite well so there will be no attempt to improve on it, plus copy/paste is a lot easier than creativity

I may not know what love is, but I'm pretty sure you don't express it by giving someone a teddy bear. When a guy gives his girlfriend a teddy bear for Valentine's Day, that's a warning sign on par with finding frozen body parts in his fridge, or a Jack Johnson mix on his iPod.

Romantic partners prone to cutesy gifts are masking a deep hurt -- a pain so dark and insidious that it's only a matter of time before it drags you down with it. So get out while you can! And may God help you if you're ever given a stuffed animal wearing sunglasses.

While we're on the topic of twisted love, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite twisted love stories here on AtomFilms. Enjoy...

Little Farm directed by Calvin Reeder

Measuring Up directed by Jesse Scaturo
It's perfectly natural to be curious about how you measure up against every man your wife has ever been with, right?

Our Very First Sex Tape directed by Amy Talkington
Intent on spicing up their relationship, a couple decides to film their very own sex tape in a seedy hotel. As the camera rolls, the erotic sparks flame a seemingly vicious battle between the two lovers. Of course, like any battle, it ain't over until it's over. Catch Alex Michel, the original star of ABC's hit reality series, The Bachelor, in his film debut

I Heart Billy directed by Michael Mohan
A teenage girl confesses on-camera about her true love, Billy. Her relationship isn't quite like the other kids' in school, to put it mildly. You'll almost believe their love is pure...

Scrapple directed by Jay & Mark Duplass
How many points is the word f-i-g-h-t? If you love someone — we mean really love someone — do not play word games with them. It'll just turn into a big (and mean) mind game. And then you'll fight. At least, that's what happens with this couple

The One O’Clock directed by Kelsey Kleiman
Bob and Susan have marital problems. He's an unemployed loser; and she, well… she desperately needs some bedroom lovin'. Will their one o'clock therapy session be the cure for what ails them?

(a personal note- teddy bears if given with care and creativity are always a great gift)
