Storyline

Mussorgsky's composition is the soundtrack for this pin-screen animated take on night and wild things. A scarecrow blows down, clouds move by quickly. Beings take shape; a town appears, animals flee, and a horse gallops by. A child looks on. Monsters run and float by: the phantasmagoric is everywhere. A woman's figure tumbles through space. A clash ensues. The horse falls. Goblins take control. The night and its denizens are relentless. Forms appear and become grotesque. Will dawn and calm ever come? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

what a rush!
15 May 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

ever wondered why the BEEP Walt Disney made such a horrific sequence at the end of Fantasia? well, don't hesitate to watch Une Nuit sur le Mont chauve, because everything you thought was scary about that animated Disney sequence will now be altered in a real life short movie. here we see games with the death and corpses and witches more than the devil on the mountain himself. it's quite frightening, to be exact. it surely scared the hell out of me (really). the music and the nonstop animation with puppets go to an extreme corporation together, while they blend in a lot of troubling scout camp teachers and fire woods from the depths of hell. you want to be scared? go watch this short movie, it will change your definition of horror movies completely.
