“Safety With Scissors” is a fake educational film about scissors safety featuring some dumbass in an afro, I guess because afros are funny, that winds up getting a pair of scissor lodged in his head.
I love educational films, so I appreciate the effort that this filmmaker has put forth, but I think the goofy factor was kicked up way too much on this short, so the joke is kinda squashed by super whacky acting, silly gore and yeah…that afro. What I liked most about “Safety With Scissors” is the opening and closing super 8 footage of various locations like train stations and fountains that play as background fodder for the credits. I think this is where they really captured the feel of a cheesy educational film.
