It is only a few minutes before one in the morning and the rude and repetitive noise of an incoming call ruptures the stillness of the night. Who could that be at this hour? And why is the husband as stiff as a corpse?
A sudden power outage traps an unsuspecting young woman within the restrained space of an empty straight corridor, where an abstract but malevolent entity is in total control. Can the powerless woman run towards the escape door?
Suddenly, a lonely young woman senses that something is not quite right with her eyesight. What could possibly be altering the boundaries of human perception, dictating her eyes to see things that simply do not exist?
Once again innocent Tilly for fear of the dark, was found by her stepmother sucking on her little pink thumb. But if the knotty, crooked cane won't teach Tilly a lesson, perhaps black Suckablood will; that's his intention. He is a servant of hell, vile and clever, he will creep in your dreams and will haunt you forever. So, cruel, wicked mothers beware what you wish, for Suckablood's near to collect from the foolish.Written by
This is a beautifully-done fairy tale in the Old World manner; no pretty princesses and no heroes, just a naughty child, a stern parent, and the inevitable punishment. In this case, the child's unforgivable sin is sucking her thumb. The step-mother calls down the curse of Suckablood, a Nosferatu-like creature who...well, it's pretty obvious. The ending is not.
It's certainly reminiscent of Tim Burton, but not just a knock-off of his style. It has its own voice and texture, and is genuinely creepy. The voice work is very good, with the narrator bringing to mind Boris Karloff without doing an imitation of him. I recommend this to anyone with a love for dark humor and impressive animation/live action hybrids.
