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.
