Freaky Fred (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

Gazing upon a sight that fills me with dread. That sight would be that of dear Fred. Who’s widen smile makes my stomach all knotty. Because I know beyond those lifeless eyes is someone who’s thoughts are all…. Naughty. Courage the Cowardly dog is an endearing show for those who enjoy absurdist humor and the […]

Horror – 31 SPOOKS of October

Thanks to Mike for letting me take this one, I guess I got to be funny to get that laugh energy. So… What’s the deal with the title of this short? I mean could you be any lazier, hope you didn’t stare at “untitled horror project” for too long before this eureka moment. I think […]

The Backwater Gospel – 31 SPOOKS of October

I miss Telltale Games. With 3 million views on YouTube Bo Mathorne’s Bachelor film project is a special caliber of animated short. I think this is so masterfully done from how deep rooted the story is, how unique the visuals are, and how thrilling the entire thing ends up being. I will warn you (NOT […]

Every Episode of ‘Creeped Out’ Ranked

To get into the halloween spirit I needed to watch some spooky programing and saw Netflix promoting the BBC horror anthology series Creeped Out.  Are any of the episodes worth checking out and if so which ones here’s my personal rank of each episode so if you want to check this fun, spooky series you know […]

Who’s Hungry? – 31 SPOOKS of October

* May Contain scenes of violence not suitable for all audiences. Viewer Discretion is Advised * I scream, you scream who wouldn’t scream for some ice cream? Especially when the ice cream man may not be such a jovial fella. As simplistic as Who’s Hungry is there’s something about the sketchbook shading, choppy frame rate, […]

The Maker – 31 SPOOKS of October

It is rare to find something as delightfully macabre as Zealous Creative’s stop motion animation The Maker. Producers Christopher and Christine Kezelos execute a gorgeous and stunning little bottle story that takes our cute (slightly off-putting) bunny doll fellow and without explicitly explaining much it’s clear that he is challenged in some sort of race […]

Children’s Toys/ No Monsters – 31 SPOOKS of October

Welcome to Autodale, a safe home for you and me. Robots are our friends and with their help order and harmony is achieved. How beautiful it is to grow up in such a … perfect governed state.  David James Armsby created two shorts in this city of the future that illustrated the way robots and […]

There’s A Man in the Woods – 31 SPOOKS of October

Is there a man in your woods… well then you better go catch him. Kids, they certainly have their overactive imagination and while this may lead to a few white lies it’s not like they’re hurting anyone right? The short was produced during Jacob Streilein’s time at Cal-Arts and while talent was bound to be […]

Other Lilly – 31 SPOOKS of October

I teased that a certain animator would appear again on the list and here we find ourselves returning to David Romero. I guess you could say tonight we have a sort of… “creature feature”. Babysitting shouldn’t be that hard, but something tells me that is going to be the least of Lilly’s worries. Please enjoy […]

Behind Closed Doors – 31 SPOOKS of October

Kids, you’re not allowed to watch this one this short traumatized Portuguese children and they’re way more hardcore than… where ever you come from dear reader. There’s a monster in the closet… every child’s worst nightmare but what if the real monsters don’t lurk under a bed or behind our closet doors. What if monsters […]

The Passenger – 31 SPOOKS of October

Earthworm Jim visits the town from Frankie Weenie and learns a valuable lesson about listening to shitty trap music too loud on public transportation. Can’t believe I found a way to describe it in a way that left everyone confused… today’s short spook is The Passenger. Before I let you view it I want to […]

Mirror – 31 SPOOKS of October

This collection of sorts is to celebrate all types of animation with the only requirement that it to some degree is to be considered spoopy. Today we have a criminally underrated stop motion short. This short was made for October 31 in 2009 so it fits perfectly in this Halloween inspired collection. I was surprised […]

The Sad Man – 31 SPOOKS of October

Uploaded on Halloween in 2015, it’s safe to assume Jake Lava intended for his short The Sad Man to be a little chilling. This is probably the closet we get to the eeriness of the “Salad Fingers” variety but dang is there something intrinsically off-putting about this odd, odd fellow. While I usually give you […]

I’m Back! Big Announcement (31 Spooks of October 2018)

Wow it has been awhile, but it is good to be back. First… sorry to anyone following this site for just going dark for about a month with no explanation why. I figured I’m small and insignificant enough that, no one really is going to care if they’re getting posts from me or not but […]
