Here’s the thing: I was originally going to feature Escargore as my Short Film Saturday post about a month or so ago. But then the shooting in Paris occurred and because the film has a kind of/sort of French theme and a gory premise I wondered that it might be seen as insensitive and that would not have been my intention at all. So, I decided to wait a little while and feature it at a later date which of course is right here and right now. I hope I’ve waited long enough. It is not my intention to offend anyone or to seem crass or insensitive. My goal is to entertain you with these films and I believe this particular one will do just that. Escargore is a terrifically animated horror-comedy that had me laughing out loud while simultaneously shouting, “Oh no!” and “No, don’t go in there!”. I loved it and I hope all of you will, too. Enjoy it below.
