Alma: A Fantastic Animated Short Film (with Creepy Dolls)

January 6, 2010

Check out the fantastic short animated film Alma, which, as the title of this post suggests, concerns a creepy doll shop. The visuals are really amazing, and it's been described as a "Equal parts Pixar and The Twilight Zone." In fact, It's an independent film written and directed by Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas, who took time off to make Alma in his native Spain.

I won't write any more about it—you'll just have to watch and find out what happens. Apparently it will only be viewable on the Web for a short while, so watch it while you can. You can view the film here, after the jump.

(Oh, and it's not violent or shocking or anything like that, just creepy, so if your kids can handle creepy—in a Roald Dahl sort of way, for example—they should be OK watching it, too.)
