Stories like Beauty and the Beast emphasizes this point to be kind to strangers, that if a beggar approaches your door you should be charitable and offer them some of your spoils. What they never teach you in this type of stories though is that there’s a difference between blatantly being a jerk and the way more effective passive rudeness. In these stories they always insult the person and demand claim they’ll only be charitable for a certain price… I’m just not even going to answer the door. No stories of how pretending not to be home ended up coming back to haunt someone… just saying. The Umbrella Factory is a charming sort of “The New Yorker” or English style animation that shows that bad things happen when you answer the door.
Please enjoy today’s short: The Umbrella Factory
Great job to the collaborative group, Naissance they have a ton of horror related videos on their Vimeo so be sure to go check them out this Halloween season. Very interesting adaptation of The Monkey’s Paw true to the original but built with a different aesthetic. I actually remember recently reading an adaptation of the Monkey’s Paw that was interesting that maybe you could check out HERE, it’s written pretty amateurish but I’m sure the dumb idiot writing it is doing his best you know. As someone who occasionally goes on Ted Talk and I think a YouTube Channel called The Bright Side, am I the only one that was prepared to answer a riddle because that was the vibe I was picking up. It’s a nice animation all in all, that grips the audience both with its visuals and narration.
