Horror on Drugs, deep intelligent depressing horror on drugs
9 August 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have not read the book by Franz Kafka but it can't be better or creepier than this drawn short-movie.

It's about an ill child and a doctor who should help the child... I can't say more.

The drawings are awesome, confusing, creepy and someway disgusting but in a way that it's still some kind of art.

The music absolutely fits, same for the voices. The whole atmosphere this short flick raises up so fast is incredible, I would really like to see more stuff like this. The only things I could compare it with are the flash animated cartoons by David Firth.

Just watch it, it's sick and dark but also beautiful in it's way.
