This movie tells the story of a cat named Francis investigating a string of cat murders in his new neighborhood.

This movie absolutely has a “what the fuck just happened” sort of vibe. The animation style is wonderful and the entire thing is a testament to how animated stories can and SHOULD be used to tell stories to children AND adults. There’s graphic murder, sex, blood, and a fucking CULT. But its all cats!

This is a short watch, only about an hour and twenty minutes and is a German movie; even though I watched it with the English dubย and found the voice acting to be pretty good. It reminded me of The Great Mouse Detective. It is also based on a book, which is on my list of things to read, and even though it’s demented and kinda predictable, it’s a cool movie! Just don’t let your kids watch it. It’s more adult than Watership Down and has just as much nightmare fuel.

July Loot Crate: Animation

  • Rick figure flipping the bird
  • Bob’s Burger’s pin
  • Slurm can cozies from Futurama
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirt
  • Bob’s Burgers Burgher of the day recipes

I don’t have a photo of it (mostly because I usually don’t care about the box) but this month came with a nifty display side for the burger recipes.

On that note; THIS BOX CAME WITH RECIPES! ๐Ÿ˜€ I only recently got into Bob’s Burgers (I was watching it while I was in the hospital) so I think that’s a super cool item. Not as cool as that shirt because I’m a shameless nostalgic fangirl for the original TMNT cartoon.

As for the Rick figure… Is it bad that I expected WORSE than just a middle finger behind that huge red bar? I thought he’d be dual wielding dildos or something. From what little I’ve seen of the show; flipping someone off is the LEAST Rick has done. It’s a nice figure and reminded me that I do need to give that series another try but only after I’m done with Bob’s Burgers and Black Mirror.

Finally Watched It: Salad Fingers

I had never heard of this series before but since Film Theory is doing an analysis of it, I actually thought I would check it out. This is yet another thing that I mentioned I’d never seen or heard of that garnered a gasp of shock so, it qualifies for my Finally Watched It series.

This is freaky as hell with some very disturbing imagery. I wouldn’t let my kid see this if I had any control over it, that’s for damn sure. But, call me psycho, I found this to be supremely sad. Perhaps the Film Theory colored my perception of it but I watched the series all in one shot and it was clear to me that our main character up there has either done some really fucked up shit or has been through some really fucked up shit and he just broke. His mind is DONE. Everything in his behavior smacks of DID and PTSD. The second part of that video didn’t come out yet but I really do wonder if he’s a former soldier with severely damaged hands who was possibly a POW.

Yeah, I know. This is a messed up series and there’s something probably messed up in my head for me to jump to sadness and pity for the main character rather than abject horror. Don’t get me wrong, I was disturbed and freaked out but to me, it was so obvious that what I was seeing was inside someone’s head that all I could think of is what terror this poor man suffered to end up like this.

My guess is probably WAY off base, though.

If you are looking for some creepy old animation to watch for Halloween, this series will take up about an hour of your time. I can’t say it’s for everyone so feel free to bail out after the first part if you want. I wouldn’t blame you.

If I remember, I’ll post if I was right or not about my guess.
