Ever wondered why Teddy Bears are so snuggly-wuggly cute? Well, the answer to that is hinted in the title. And they have to consume lots of it.
Having gotten into a bountiful selection of festivals, we can honestly say there are kids out there who will be having some real trippy waking-dreams after watching Sangre De Unicorno, which literally translates as “Unicorn Blood”. Yah, nothing weird here.
The animation was done by Alberto Vazquez, produced in part by Canal+.
We like ruining kids fantasies like the next guy, the psychopathic child-like scratchings and ‘unclean’ animation went a long way to drive home a narrative’s distorted parable/fairytale feel you’d get from a real old-school cautionary tale. The red tint is a nice touch too, reminded me of a terrible nightmare I had once as a kid.
