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 :.

Reminded of my past nightmares... I hated them. Everything would look normal, feel normal, but I knew it wasn't... then whenever I looked into a dark area, eyes would be looking back at me. Followed by some demondog jumping out and ripping into me, then I would awake. Makes you wonder if things in nightmares are just figments in your head, or much much more.
