Tommy Groth is no stranger to visually appealing and unsettling content. His film All You Can Eat is a short that successfully actualizes one of the most common childhood nightmares. The facade of Groth's clown character being a trustworthy next door neighbor introduces viewers to a twisted insight of what happens behind closed doors.
The trailer for All You Can Eat begins with a sign saying "All The Candy You Can Eat" that lures kids in Halloween costumes into the yard of a deranged children's entertainer. Having a clown next door may sound like a dream for the children in this suburban neighborhood, but a closer looked inside this clown's home can even make adults quiver to the sight. Trick or treat is given a new interpretation when Groth opens the doors of a house full of broken toys and traps.
Although the Groth's use of blaring circus music and distorted images of a suburban neighborhood don't fully prepare viewers for this short, All You Can Eat gives the phrase "Enter if You Dare" a whole new meaning.
