Disturbing Stuff
11 March 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Two lonely old spinsters live by the seashore and spend their days catching fish and making tea . One day they find a shipwrecked sailor washed up upon the shore and take him back to their shack

A BAFTA award winning animated short but if you think this is a family friendly cartoon be warned that it's anything but . The horror aspect is very well done but dare I say it's may be done a bit too well ? The imagery is grotesque and is keeping with the downbeat nihilistic feel of the story which often reminded me of John Hillcoat's film THE ROAD . I should point out that this animated film came out before the Hillcoat film but does feel like it exists in the same universe and timeline of that movie . That said the concept of two ladies living alone having an anti-social life threatening lifestyle isn't original and we've all heard of ARSENIC AND OLD LACE if not seen it for ourselves and while that film was genuinely amusing her everything is totally grim . It also manages to convey what's going on very well since there's about only one line of dialogue and is a good short despite the humour being a bit too black for a mainstream audience
