RICK AND MORTY: BUSHLAND ADVENTURES (2018)
DISTURBING AND HILARIOUS SHORT - 68/100
April Fools came and went in 2018. With it came a strange little short parody of Rick and Morty called Rick and Morty: Bushland Adventures. Crass, raw and creepy, this episode(?) places our duo in a hyper-disturbing Australian landscape. This one-shot follows them as they travel to the town of Bendigo to retrieve "Rick's Box."
Wow, this episode is almost regrettable to watch. Kinda like A Serbian Film or Human Centipede. It's just so dark and twisted when you compare it to the series that it's parodying. It's interesting that this short had come along while this controversy about weather or not Rick and Morty will return for a fourth season is happening. Convenient.
The deep Australian references might be lost on most of the North American crowd, but our brothers and sisters in the south are going to love it. This short is incredibly intense, with its jagged and unhinged art-style and characters. It's worth a watch to all the Rick and Morty fans out there. Beware if you aren't already a fan.
