"I Love Death" is about Ben (who is also Death.) Ben falls in love with a vibrant woman whose soul he is supposed to take...


"I Love Death" is a Romantic Comedy short film about love and Death.

Ben's job is Death, and he is lonely. He spends his days taking souls as a faithful servant of God. One fateful day, he is assigned to take the soul of Amy, a pretty and bright school teacher. But Ben falls for her and cannot complete the task.

As Ben spends more time with her, she falls for him. He explains his aversion to touching her by claiming to be germophobic.

To make matters worse, God finds out she still lives and increases the pressure on Ben to complete his job. If Ben does not, the balance of life and death will be broken and the world will end.

But how can Ben take the soul of the only woman he's ever loved in all eternity?
