"The fear of proving the superiority of the western civilization to the afghan villager watching tv with me" ... a bottled horror in need of releasing, of siccing the helldogs unto the viewer. A robust anthology that suffers from the fluctuating quality most do. Highlights are the incredible stories of the crocodile and of the insects... an audible chirping inside your bed, for years and years.
(Vu qekpart sur le web) Tout d'abord, ce film est une incontestable réussite artistique! Il parvient étonnamment bien à conserver le style propre à chacun des auteurs de BD qui réalisent ses différents segments. L'utilisation du noir et blanc est variée et tjs magnifique. Certains courts ressortent clairement du lot: je pense en particulier à ceux de C. Burns et de L. Mattoti, petits joyaux de surréalisme morbide!
two shorts are really good, albeit in a different ways - one visually, the other one from a narrative standpoint - but they would really function better as stand alone features, something you'd see online, than integrated in this anthology which thematically might as well be held together by strings
The textures of the animation are really great, but the writing feels a little weak in most episodes. It's the final episode that makes this film worth watching though. A wonderfully cinematic tale that reall plays with light and dark to great effect, and basically without dialogue. Worth watching for this episode alone.
This superb collection of short animated horror films shows just what can be done with both animation and the horror genre. Five unique artists with diverse and often brilliant animation styles that manage to coalesce into an extraordinary whole. This is a near masterpiece that deserves wider recognition.
