It’s not The Box — this came first: The makers of this short say they had never heard of the Richard Matheson story, or the Twilight Zone episode based on it, never mind The Box. (via Sci Fi Wire)
It’s a box. A cardboard box. Frank Langella brings it to your door, and inside is the Pop-o-matic of Death, and you either push the big red button under the plastic dome, in which case someone you don’t know dies and you get a cool million in a briefcase, or you don’t, in which you don’t get a movie made about you. Resisting the Moral Dilemma? No movie for you!
