As a ruthless murderer is hanging out along with several gory corpses, a little frightened boy is standing in a corner in fear. The murderer notices the little scared kid and kidnaps him.
In this extremely impressive short animation, we have a little boy kidnapped by a big masked killer. The little kid was at first a witness to his gruesome actions, but because of carelessness and loud crying, he became another victim. Trapped by this killer, he's being served a maggot-covered severed head of a child for dinner. There are a few unexplainable scenes like expected, and I personally found it hard to understand if those were a crucial part of the plot. It sort of seemed like they were, but films like these can still be great without being understood. Simply because of how well made the stop-motion and clay effects are. I definitely find this film more impressive in that sense than in it's gore and depravity. The film is pretty gory, atleast when it comes to already existing wounds, so it's not that it lacks any of that.
I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't have wanted to see a live action movie of it too, just because of how great the gore was for being clay. Not sure what kind of point I'm making, but let's say it's 5/5 in gore effects as far as clay goes. Few films live action films are 5/5.
With that said, the film is extremely well made, and the people behind it should be proud of themselves. The set design is dark and obscure, and the gore looks brutal. The people's faces are white and they have strange gray eyes, and that alone is something that helps building the feel of the film. The film sort of looks like the film "The Man In The Lower Left Hand Corner Of The Photograph" except for the faces. "The Man In..." is a better film though.
It's a cool little 7 minute film, and fans of "The Man In The Lower Left Hand Corner Of The Photograph", Justin Curfman shorts, or just any other morbid animation film should give it a spin. I guess I just wish the plot would have been a bit better. Or atleast that those few but confusing scenes would've made more sense.
