A wolf and his friends, Fox and Cat, make a trip to the woods where Wolf finds his father. He has not seen him in many years. They find the small cabin where his father, Old Fangs, is living. While Fox and Cat wait in the grass a ways away from the cabin, Wolf confronts his father, who criticizes him for being disgusted by the meat he (Old Fangs) eats. He then offers Wolf a cigarette, which Wolf is reluctant to accept. Shortly after that, Wolf comes out and tells his friends that his father wasn't happy to see him. He reflects on his past through flashbacks, remembering how his mother ran away with him and how he didn't join in when his father hunted deer. The short film ends with Old Fangs crying inside his house. Written by Dogman15

Haunting and captivating
14 October 2011 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

"Old Fangs" is marvelous short.

The story is quite simple, but the way in which it is exposed is what makes it so special: The atmosphere is beautifully done, giving it a haunting and mysterious, while the character designs seem stylish (In some ways, the design of the characters remind me a bit the Japanese animated short "Cat Soup")

Additionally, the music from this short is excellent, being nostalgic and somewhat creepy (but in a good way) at the same time. The only flaw from "Old Fangs" it's the ending...Which, I have to say, feels way too open from my taste, lacking of a resolution. But despite that, I think that "Old Fangs" it's a wonderful, underrated short, that deserves a lot of more recognition.

9/10 (It's quite good)
