o god y hope the apocalypse isnt like that . good animation and like the 80,s . so creepy that y wish that none scientist are CRAZY

Gorey as Hell and well animated. Love it all to bits.

One tiny thing I enjoyed near the beginning was how it cuts from the young woman, to the older man, and then shows the painting of the both them as well as the third member. Kinda conveys visually how that third member isn't there anymore, even before we see the body. It is a tiny thing to get excited over, yeah, but I thought it was neat, as is the rest of this short film, which overall is good at sending tiny messages to the viewer's subconscious that they should be scared.

Thank you :)

WOW! its like "la vie, la vie" meet "hellsing"! incredible and very well made!

The sound design was FUCKING FANTASTIC. MY FUCKING GOD THAT WAS INCREDIBLE! Top fucking notch on every front! I know I'm in the minority on this but I actually found the Elder God of Chaos at the end there pretty damn scary. Wednesday's fully mutated form/finished transformation in the final scene was genuinely disturbing as hell. An eternity of deliberately kept as being (Almost?) fully human mentally while fully transformed into an Elder god's wife and probably plaything/pet and seeing and doing all of the things that her new and horrible life most definitely entails for all eternity and beyond that will probably drive her beyond completely insane.

I am curious about two things in particular though. Do Wednesday and Lesley have English accents? I've listened fairly intently a few times to what little vocalizations they do make and I still can't quite tell. Also, since they were the only characters to actually live to the end, will we ever see Wednesday or the monster at the end of the short again or is this their first and only appearance?

ClockworkPixel responds:

Thanks for this! With times being what they are reading this put a smile on my face.

Yes! They do have english accents. Being based in the UK it’s quicker to get friends to do bit parts haha
And as for seeing them again i’d say definitely lol everything i make is connected in the same location so they will pop up again at some-point.
