And you're right!.. sorta. Really more on Matpat discussing Max Fleischer and his occult themes. Really more "What if the villain in the original plan for Cool World was actually a god-like army?" than "What if Bendy got a house at HHN?". Darrin Adler was a small-time animator who never claimed the same fame as Disney nor Fleischer, but has gained a cult following in recent years. A local film enthusiast purchased some of the original reels, and organized a little film festival centered on the shorts. Things went well, until a mysterious fire started behind the screens. Within the next minutes, Adler's creations busted through the screen, warping reality to meet their surreal expectations. The warped maze is mostly B&W, with red and orange shades scattered throughout. Monster scaracters are dressed like old-time cartoon characters, some funny animals and some humans, many with larger-than-life weapons. Some scenes: The Theater: The first few rooms. The facade is simple enough, ignoring the fading colors, creepy silhouettes lurking about, and suspicious ink stains. Once inside, The lobby is a chaotic mess, with chairs strewn about (some lodged in the wall), a dead concession stand worker, and various posters depicting Adler, some consisting of photos and other as self-portraits. Be wary on the self portraits, they may be hiding malevolent caricatures of himself. Then the actual theater, where slaughtered men lay in the seats. Of course some are really cartoons. Exit through the torn screen. The Bar: The bar scene from Gremlins, replace the Gremlins with cartoon characters, pretty much. Some toons are torturing people, some getting completely wasted, and to are dueling with guns, the loser proceeding to take a shot of whiskey, which pours out of the bullet holes. The bartender begs for help, only to be threatened by another toon. The Alley: A group of toons, some drunk from the last scene, are roughing up a guy, sometimes turning on each other. A drunk clown stumbles through some trashcans, threatening the guests with a broken bottle. The House: Skip a few. At this point, inanimate objects are coming alive, people are living despite horrible life-ending wounds, and some of the toons aren't looking so hot. Enter the house, where the table is feral and a toon family are trying to kill each other. However, the big thing is the fireplace, which has warped into a gateway to the netherworld, which is spewing smoke and faking a fire. And you have to walk through it. Yay. Hell: Here, we get a little backstory. Adler made a certain type of deal to make his cartoons walk and talk, expecting to make it so that his cartoons would be easier to animate. Sure, they might have been a little easier to animate, but Adler lost his soul and now his creations are wreaking havoc throughout existance. These rooms are basically mockeries of cartoons, where the toons torture humans and each other. Darrin Adler: The final room. Darin Adler is now a (Stilt-Walker) Half-Toon Half-Demon, threatening to force guests to experience the eternal torture he has lived through. Near the exit, a warped Caricature and his "Mickey" attack the guests. The soundtrack is mostly swing/jazz, with only a few breaks. (Does "Let's All Go To The Lobby" count? And is that even period appropriate? Aw, who cares.) Some contortionists would be perfect for some scaracters, enabling characters to bend and twist like their inspirations. As for the "Mickey", what would be Adler's iconic character? Who would make up the ensemble that would appear the most? I haven't the clue, but mice, cats, rabbits, lapdogs, demons, and bears are probably off-limits. i would like to hear your rick and morty haunted house idea since im a big fan of the show 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
