One can clearly hear the splattering blood when the massacre transpired, thank goodness this is animated  and viewers are spared of the ghastly sight of blood. Still everything was dark and twisted with the central idea focusing on death.  As bizarre as it may seem,  one can  see a glimpse of the flaws of human nature and the lurid effects that  wrong assumptions can have.

  • Somehow this short animation reminds me of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson but with an unexpected twist.

  • SPOILER : I love this animation! The darkness is purely tormenting, which I think, Bo Mathorne's agenda. It pushed the village to the verge of insanity, waiting and wondering who's turn was to die led them to a massacre. FULL blown massacre. Good job Undertaker!
