Animation to make your jaw drop! One man’s nightmares are made flesh in extraordinary detail guaranteed to invade your own dreams; there’s highly critical and unhealthy oedipal advice, amphibians take full advantage of a pool party; the overlords of a totalitarian insect regime are targeted by the resistance and some gently curved metal will break your heart. You may never be able to use wire-cutters again.
