Beautiful Animated Film Uses Familiar Childhood Fear to Illustrate Real Threat of Gun Violence
Apr 09, 2014
This beautiful film created out of Grey and directed by Hornet's Yves Geleyn tells the familiar tale of a boy afraid of the "monster in his closet." His parents assure him that his fears are unfounded. But the boy investigates for himself and unleashes a real beast that ultimately ravages him, and no doubt his entire family.
The charming storybook style of the film, replete with fanciful animation, featuring a whimsical soundtrack by Mutato Muzika's Mark Mothersbaugh and edited out of Cut+Run, serves as an effective redirect that intensifies the final, gruesome, outcome.
