Watch The Apocalypse, the Mind-Blowing Borscht Film Festival Short That Screened at Sundance

Andrew Zuchero's short film The Apocalypse was one of the audience favorites at the Borscht Film Festival last month. Turns out, that audience had pretty great taste, because the film was accepted to screen at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, running now through Sunday.

What's not to love? You've got quality actors like Martin Starr, of the hilarious and underappreciated comedy Party Down. You've got an opening topic everybody can relate to: boredom. And you've got a series of explosive surprises that'll turn your head inside out. (See what we did there?)

See it for yourself after the jump.
