They're Made Out of Meat

While not quite macabre, They're Made Our of Meat is a great sci-fi short that works remarkably well for a study of David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Directed by Stephen O'Regan and based on a short story by Terry Bisson, the film oozes atmosphere from that first shot of the diner until the sudden disappearance (teleportation?) of the bemused aliens. Tom Noonan is brilliant as always and Ben Bailey is hilarious in his disgust for the human species that is "made out of MEAT." Check it out and keep in mind - eating the human kind of meat is called "cannibalism" and is not advised to people who live in countries where it is illegal.
