Some Folks Call It A Sling BladeDVD - 2004
A disturbed man looks back at his past as he faces an uncertain future in this dramatic short subject. Teresa, a young journalist, is sent on assignment to a state-run mental hospital, where she is to interview Karl Childers, soon to be released after spending 25 years in the facility. While a hospital's administrator isn't sure that it's a good idea for Karl to be questioned by a young woman, he allows a compromise - Teresa will be permitted to hear Karl tell the story of how he came to be committed, but she can't ask him questions. Teresa is then ushered into a dimly lit room, where Karl relates the harrowing tale of his miserable childhood and how, at the age of 13, he killed his mother and her lover with a kaiser blade. The story was expanded into a full-length feature Sling Blade in 1996.
