Abyssal

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 :.

It’s not playing for me. It’s probably great, but I can’t see it.
Edit: it played, and WOW. This is phenomenal. I can’t even describe it.

Seems like you kinda scaled-down the horror for the abyss in AH, if this is any indication.

I enjoy your work greatly

still a very good animation

this movie is good

I recognized Pob, but who was the long-nosed guy?
