London filmmaker Rob McLellan;s straightforward short film ABE takes some heavy minutes out of Silence of the Lambs, speciifically where serial killer Buffalo Bill interacts with the girl in the well. The twist: gender enraged psychopath making a “girl dress” is replaced by Robot Butler looking for a human suit. Great!
