Pâques Man is a 2000 French short horror film written and directed by Michel Leray.[1][2]


Mr. Cadoeuf (Ludovic Berthillot), the CEO of the Kinder chocolate company, is kidnapped in a parking lot. Later, he wakes up in a room and discovers a television remote and a mysterious man (the captor) appears on the television in the room to tell him that the key to escape is hidden in a Kinder Surprise grafted under his skin. Mr. Cadoeuf is also told that he has a limited amount of time to get the key out of his body and escape the room before a deadly bomb explodes.[3]

The short film has clearly inspired many horror films such as Saw by James Wan.
