CARTOONS FROM HELL, Charleston Film Festival...

That's right... the third edition of the traveling showcase "Cartoons From HELL" is going to play at the Charleston International Film Festival this Saturday night. New to the line up is Christy Karacas and Steve Warbrick, the creators of "Super Jail".

"Bubble Wrap" by Arthur Metcalf
"Lupo the Butcher" by Danny Antonucci
"Puppet" by Patrick Smith
"Shut Eye Hotel" by Bill Plympton
"Bar Fight" by Christy Karacas and Steve Warbrick
"The Box Man" by Nirvan Mullick
"Ah L'Amour" by Don Hertzfeldt
"Son of Satan" by JJ Villard
"Seventeen" by Hisko Hulsing

As you can see, it's quite the line up of darkly epic disturbing animation. These are simply my favorite animators to date, and some of the greatest animated films of all time. "Cartoons From HELL" will also screen at MOCCA Art Festival this June here in New York.
