->''Just thought it'd be fair to let you know why you're going to die.''

A WebOriginal debuting in 2010, focusing on murderers, serial killers, and [[VillainProtagonist all around villains]].

The pilot shows the event when a nameless man enters the house of a drinking lounge-about. What happens next is chaos and violence, coupled with the killer's dark desire and the poor man's fight to survive. Add a picture of a mysterious girl and a granola bar to the mix, and you've got a four minute short that was originally written to introduce an entire series.

The pilot, first appearing March 1, 2010, provides examples of:

* AlmostDeadGuy: After the blackout.
* AsYouKnow: Subverted. It seems the killer is about to tell the audience and the man why he?s come to the house, but then simply drops the subject and then [[spoiler: kills him. Brutally.]]
* BookEnds: The pilot begins and ends with the sunny street.
* CurbStompBattle: Not right away, but it becomes quickly apparent that the killer is gonna walk out satisfied.
* DavidVersusGoliath: The killer is not a big guy. The slob is?quite large.
* FightScene: Basically the whole thing.
* FollowTheLeader: The pilot makes it look almost Dexter-ish, but later episodes prove otherwise.
* ForkFencing: The slob pulls a steak knife out of a drawer when the fight makes its way into the kitchen.
* ImprovisedWeapon: When the killer finds himself against an armed man, he uses [[spoiler: a granola bar]] with deadly results.
* NamelessNarrative: No names are given for either the killer, the slob, or the [[spoiler: woman in the photo]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight: Yeah, that knife isn?t gonna help?
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Seems to be the backstory, but we?re never explicitly told.
* SharpDressedMan: Compare the killer?s attire to the slob. It may not be a suit and tie, but it?s certainly nicer.
* SoundtrackDissonance: The radio plays in the house, and the final song puts an eerie look to the final moments of the fight.
* VillainProtagonist: Yeah.
