This video perfectly sums up a particular Halloween aesthetic I have always liked. It’s trippy and spooky while still maintaining a real sense of joy. Lately this aesthetic has gone away in favor of something much more brutal, much more in your face. You can see it in the way horror films have completely moved away from the things that made them great in the first place towards a sort of theater of pain. Don’t get me wrong – I like gore as much as the next person. Dead Alive is a masterpiece. But only because it never loses it’s sense of fun or humor. A film like Captivity or hostel or Last House on the Left in the meantime is more an act of endurance on the part of the audience than anything I’d consider a nice night out at the movies. Anyway, I’m getting pretty far off track here, This little five minute cartoon is one of my favorite things.
