The Backwater Gospel (2011)


Yeah, I mean... WOW!!!

The Backwater Gospel is set in a small desert town that looks part Gothic/part Old West.  The town is ruled by a God fearing Minister who tries to turn the town against the anti-religious Tramp.  The town is visited by a mysterious bicycle riding Undertaker, and whenever he comes it only means one thing - death.  The town is gripped by fear upon his visits which eventually causes mass hysteria to say the least.

This is one of the coolest animated shorts I've ever seen and now the prospect of a future full length feature has me drooling.  I'd love to see a longer version of this.  Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
