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 :.

i make the worst decisions when i can't sleep, for instance, watching this video. i'm sure you wanted to creep people out, and that's what happened to me, so congratulations. i just hope i don't dream of what he did.

Well now

I checked out your entire section of monsters you drew on your site, But I was having trouble finding a lot of these ones featured in this flash. I was particularly fond of the monster with a "bait like" luring attachment above its mouth. Great movie!

I actually created entirely new monsters for this flash, haven't used the same designs elsewhere, but some vaguely similar ones! :)

Only hate it

because of the way you made the most beautiful creatures turn into ass fish. Great red angler, though.

Scythemantis responds:

Well, that's the idea. I wanted the monsters to look goofy and ugly, with distorted human features, rather than just being ripped directly from elegant deep-sea fish.
