There are few things that disturb me more than animation. Anime, comics, manga, graphic novels and cartoons - no matter HOW you slice it, there are things that the creators of these horrifying art forms can get away with that no movie would DARE touch.

As the popularity of Western-themed horror is on the rise (and Westerns in general, really), this is an appropriate addition to the list. This particular short was recommended to me by a friend, and it's just divine...and trust me, the ending is killer.

The story: As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die.

You can find more from The Animation Workshop on their website, and watch a 'making of' featurette here.
