Today I have chosen a couple of truly weird and disturbing animations for your delectation. These are animations that are definitely not for children to watch!
The first one is called The End, and is seriously strange. It shows a scarecrow being assaulted and apparently being killed and then thrown into a very horrible prison cell after being tortured and stabbed by another collection of what appear to be scarecrows.
There is also a Magpie involved who keeps attacking our hero in his cell and stealing stuffing from him.
The imagery in this film is extremely strong, and beautifully handled, as is the movement of the various characters we see in the course of the film. And the sound track is a superb example of how to create a mood with sound. And what is also curious is that I can’t work out if I am looking at a computer generated film, or a stop-motion film, though I lean towards the computer generated side. However it is done, the effect is truly impressive and extremely powerful..
Though to be honest I have no idea what it is trying to say to us……
If you have any ideas or suggestions about the possible meaning of this film, do please share it with the rest of us below.
Anyhow, here it is, in all its glory.
See what I mean? One very odd and dark film.
And now, here is another one, equally dark, but different to the above film.

Here are a handful of weird and wonderful animations that I have come across in my wanderings deep in the bowels of Youtube – A habit of mine, you understand.
Some of these animations are peaceful and dreamy, such as the first one, which is basically an animation all about going on an acid trip (LSD), which I came across the other day and fell in love with at once. It has such a gentle and amiable feeling about it, as you will see.
It doesn’t really need anything much being said about it, as it speaks perfectly well for itself. One of those little films that is complete in itself. I have to admit that I really loved the music and sound effects as well, they set the mood so admirably.
This next one however, which reasonably enough (watch it and you will see why I say that) is called Greed, and is a very different kettle of fish. Edgy, aggressive, and frightening, it is a sort of allegory about life. Not a gentle or friendly film at all, but worth watching I feel. And it does have a very obvious moral to it as well……..
See what I mean?
Next I offer you a German film, which is called Creation, and is – obviously – all about the creation of life on our planet, but in a very different way to the normal approach to this process….. As the guy who made the film says:
“The film depicts the creation of the world through playful images that draw parallels with the creative process associated with art. It focuses on the problems and dangers involved. But all’s well that ends well – because we’re at the movies”
