honestly, so so good. Super chilling and odd. I'll be thinkin about this one.
YAS! NUFF SAID!
as far as being kind of a darkly satirical and exaggerated portrayal of a cult you really hit the nail on the head here, there was some awesome sound design and creepy 2d/3d animation that added to the vibe
some parts did get a bit on the nose about the whole lost VHS cult tape thing here and there but the good outweighs the bad, great job
This is a pretty well-made animation. Only two things I can say to criticize it.
- I think this needs subtitles. I can't hear it properly with the distorted voice.
- While this is a good horror animation, it's nowhere near a realistic depiction of a cult, based on what I've read. No real life cult has ever appeared this blatantly sinister, as far as I know of. But you said you've studied cults. Can we compare notes some time in the future?
Appreciate the response and feedback. As far as the cult itself goes I wouldn't say I was ever aiming for a realistic depiction, but rather that of a fantastical/story book reality. So in a sense the ideas was to create an absurdist stereotype of a cult, with references to common themes of child abuse, loss of innocence, and control.
