I absolutely love reviewing shorts, but I rarely get the opportunity to review them. Most filmmakers want to tackle a feature length film over a short one. While that is all fine and good, shorts can be more effective especially if the story is lacking. With that being said, some stories have too much to tell which requires a feature length film or two to give it the justice it deserves. A few years back filmmaker and actor Jon Devlin contacted me to review a feature length film he was starring in.

After I posted the review, he once again contacted me to review a horror short he directed and starred in. The film, Erecting a Monster, was the kind of indie flick that I love. It’s absurd, full of potty humor, and completely unique when compared to other genre films of the time. The short spawned two sequels since then. I reviewed the follow up film a year or so ago and a few days back Jon hit me up to review the third film, The ResErecting. I want to thank Jon for sending this one over for review!

**Spoiler Alert** The film follows Victor (Devlin) who is living with the trauma of the past while trying to move forward. He decides to transition into a woman but cannot get the necessary surgery because she does not have the skin of the penis to be shaped into a vagina. Her friend reminds her that her schlong is buried nearby, and they can dig it up in order to do the surgery. They dig it up and accidentally resurrect it. Now the dong is going around eating people and growing. They must once again stop it before it grows to gigantic proportions. **Spoiler alert**

Erecting a Monster 3 did not go the direction I was expecting, and I truly respect that. The follow up went in a whole new direction while keeping the same sense of humor that made the first two films so much fun. I would have loved to see Devlin pull his resources and knock out a feature length film with this same story, but I’ll take whatever I can get.

The acting in this one is a lot of fun. The entire cast has a lot of energy, and you can really tell that everyone had fun on set because it is shown in every scene. Jon’s performance makes the short for me. His character is a lot of fun, and he does an amazing job at getting into character. I also thought Steve Johnson was funny and I’m glad he was able to reprise from the previous film. With all that being said, this one introduces us to Renee Honeycutt, and I seriously hope she is able to snag roles in more horror productions.

The story for this one is the most logical continuation of the first two films now that I sit here and think about it. I was expecting something along the lines of a zombie dong biting men and their dongs falling off turning into more zombie dongs. However, having the protagonist transition into a woman and the pecker growing after each meal and shedding its skin is total fucking genius. It makes great use of it’s run time and still has room to another continuation.

Finally, the film has some practical and visual effects that are really fun. I loved the fake penis skin and the buckets of blood we get but some decent gore would have gone a long way. Overall, Erecting a Monster 3 is the sleazy horror short about a killer wiener that you didn’t know you needed in your life. I highly recommend checking out this trilogy as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed.
