Nosis (Existential Pinocchio Nose Murder by Vincenz Neuhaus)

Nosis (Existential Pinocchio Nose Murder by Vincenz Neuhaus)

  We need more existential nose fiction in the world. Ever since the great one, Nikolai Gogol, conceived of a living nose tale the world has forever attempted to come out of his nostrils and do better. I am happy to say that quest has finally been completed by +5 to charisma animation paladin Vincenz […]

Coyote (LSD Animal Death Revenge by Lorenz Wunderle)

Coyote (LSD Animal Death Revenge by Lorenz Wunderle)

  Yeah where to begin with this? I feel like it's the kind of thing from which you draw your own conclusions. Is there a point? I don't care, because Coyote, with its vivid, 90s gross-out style is primarily a hallucinatory splendor for only the hardcore. But like is there a point (asks a provincial)? […]

Daughter (Stab in the Daddy Heart by Daria Kashcheeva)

  Here's one that stabs deep in the daddy heart. I love Eastern European animation. These days everyone's about anime, and I get it, but before Japan came Eastern Europe. The Czech animation machine was legendary. Old Czech Legends (1953) or Fantastic Planet (1973, lol some people think it's French), being two choice cuts. Since […]

Bone Mother (Baba-Yaga Pronounced Correctly Folk Horror)

  The horror industry should really dig into folklore more, from anywhere, and lose the jumpscares. I don't mean dig in there, steal some stuff, and then claim it as one's own, I mean let it reveal itself. Case in point this recent, animated, true-to-the-original short, Bone Mother, which draws on Russian folklore, in particular […]

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

La Noira (Broken Heart Horror by Carlos Baena)

  La Noira received tons of praise before I even looked at it, and since my suggested viewing kept bothering me about it I figured "okay, fine." Directed by mainstream (gasp) powerhouse Carlos Baena (ahem Jurassic Park III and Toy Story 3, among many others) La Noira (which translates to "The Ferris Wheel") has been […]

MFKZ (GTA San Andreas Goes Sci-Fi)

MFKZ (GTA San Andreas Goes Sci-Fi)

  MFKZ, co-directed by Guillaume Renard and Shoujirou Nishimi, is a lot of things crammed into 90 minutes of kinetic animated insanity. The nod to anime is rather overt, but there’s also an influence of alien sci-fi, call-outs to the GTA games and various elements of hip hop culture with a dose of the sort […]

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

  WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I caught a few shots of this animated short and knew it was going to freak me the hell out even before I watched it. The drab colors, the indeterminate bestiary of forest creatures that seem to tick off several different the phobias on the triggering checklist, the darkness, the loathing and oppression. […]

Freight (Crushing Sci-Fi Existentialism)

  It saddens me when I see such great, short films receive so little attention, and when they do on bigger sites it's another drop in the constant stream of digital vomit bigger names spew out at too fast a rate to notice all for the sake of quantity in this age of consume at […]

The Blissful Accidental Death (Memories Hurt)

The Blissful Accidental Death (Memories Hurt)

  After the painfully cocky, and very French, rejection from Cannes we realized we'll always be bottom-feeding worms. That's fine, because most art films don't make any money anyway. Shit, neither do we... Well forget that aborted attempt at an intro, because this is the beginning of more film coverage, especially shorts, which are grossly […]

Mob Psycho 100 (Best Anime of All Time Fight Me IRL)

It can be so hard to find good anime. Well, I take that back, it's probably true that most anime is good since it breaks with the stale conventions of American and European media, but there's just so damn much of it. Who has the time to go through a series with like 500+ episodes? Not me, […]
