Three cute girls (Mecha, Jinx, and Bunni) come together to fight their way through the fortress of Mighty Q'thulhu in their quest for the mysterious Item. "Even cuter" equals "even deadlier" in this fast-paced video of hypercute horror designed and directed by Shawn the Touched.
The Item™ debuted in 1996, and it was digitally remastered in 1997. Enhancements include much cleaner and stronger sound in stereo HiFi, and various video enhancements, not the least of which is a sharper, cleaner picture!
Contains brief nudity, violence
A young man seeking to further his studies of magic takes an apprenticeship with a power-hungry and treacherous sorceress.

In addition, this is the first WR short to be done on the new, all-digital equipment, ensuring high quality video and audio all around.
