The deep-sea abyss (marine biology) meets the uncanny valley (psychology) in my second pure "horror" story. It's not supposed to take place in water, but it is based on the common fear of being caught in the open ocean, never knowing what might stare back at you from the murk.

I also put careful consideration into the types of television characters that people found traumatic when they were younger, and based two monsters directly off notorious examples of "nightmare fuel" from British television (they're in the same shot. I'm not British, but I do enjoy their kid's shows)

I wasn't sure how to rate the nudity or violence in this. There's only one instance of each, both rather subtle and abstract.

Not counting the double-upload of "ants," this is my thirteenth cartoon and I didn't even plan it that way!

Thanks for the feature! I wasn't expected one at all :.

Erie and nightmarish. Very stimulating to the mind

I like this. Reminds me a lot of the Ending to the Berserk Manga Cartoon Series. Creeeeeeeepy.

Originality and good mix of old school

Wow, those were some really weird and frightning monsters, propably more original than I have seen in movies for years - well, maybe besides Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy II.

Yeah the idea is for the guy to be so generic and plain he could be anybody, maye the viewer :)
