The title of this short animated video about a toy is “Alma”, written and directed by Rodrigo Blaas. You may find it creepy; if you do, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Personally, I wasn’t too creeped out by “Alma”. It does something that I am always impressed by — just when I think “oh, this is yet another take on the same old thing” something surprising happens. Sometimes that’s a genuinely original idea, sometimes just an original take on an old idea. Either is fine by me.
I found this cute/creepy toy video in the comments section of an io9 article called Top 10 Most Traumatizing Movies About Toys. The commenter says that “Alma” has been optioned for a feature film by DreamWorks. No idea if this is true.
Are you creeped out by movies about toys? What did you think of “Alma”? Let us know in the comments.
