Watch: ‘Duck Children’ is Like Watching David Lynch Direct a School Play

By  · Published on August 16th, 2012

Why Watch? With the announcement of the second wave of Fantastic Fest movies, it seems fitting to watch something bizarre. Our very own Brian Kelley hipped me to this experimental short from Sam Walker where a chorus line of children dressed in duck costumes morphs into something much, much more sinister.

The atonal score does a lot of the creepy heavy lifting, but the fairy-terrifying smile of a princess and the giant-headed hunter to the rest. Yes, this is weird as hell. Gloriously, gloriously weird as hell.

What will it cost you? Only 7 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
