It’s not often that someone makes an R-rated animated movie. And when one does get made, they’re usually not too good, either over-the-top or just nasty. Every once in a while, one comes along that totally blows the the lid off of everything and becomes a huge hit, shaking things up and proving there’s an audience for this. Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires, directed by Michael Mort and made by an independent stop-motion studio in Wales called Animortal, is one of these insane movies that is sure to become an instant cult classic. We really haven’t seen an all-out, R-rated animated movie packed with this much absurdity and ridiculous humor since Team America: World Police (in 2004!). Get ready for this one. Scratch that, there’s nothing you can do to prepare yourself – except maybe watching Big Trouble in Little China on VHS before. Animortal’s Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires is a stop-motion, action-horror, totally ridiculous R-rated monster movie …

“What makes you think I can do this?!” In honor of the Annecy Film Festival for animation this week, I’m featuring a few animated short films that are worth watching. This one is titled Spell of the West, made by CalArts student Sam Lane. She made this as her third year film in the Experimental Animation program, and it’s a fun film that’s really about saving our environment and our planet. This is a super weird short, yet oddly enchanting and mysterious. I dig her visual style and the backdrops are exceptional. The voices could be improved, but considering this is a student short it’s quite impressive. Watch when you have a moment. Thanks to Short of the Week for the tip. Description from Vimeo: “On an isolated cacti farm, three stressed out birds ask a cowgirl to help put a stop to the elusive Ax-Man.” Spell of the West is directed, written, and animated by the very talented, young filmmaker …
