Spectacular Film
9 December 2006 | by tails-13See all my reviews

The plot essentially follows a frog-man who enters a "hexed" house in order to lift the curse.

The incoherent, if existent, plot may remind some people of Forbbben Zone. The animation is beautiful, and full of rich colors; in addition, the music is eerie and well-fitting to the story. The song Don't Go in the Basement, performed by Danny Elfman who also scored this piece, was just as fun and strange as the movie itself

It is an enjoyable, outlandish piece of animation, and is worth taking five minutes to appreciate.

I would recommend it to every Danny or Richard Elfman fan as well as those who love anything bizarre.
