[Saturday Morning Cartoon] ‘The Backwater Gospel’ Is Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen


I’ve hijacked Mr. Disgusting’s series! Why? Because I freaking love cartoons.

Today I have a pretty spectacular one for you. It’s called The Backwater Gospel, and between its twisted story and stunning art style, this is easily one of the coolest animated shorts I’ve ever watched. I’d describe it to you, but I feel like I should leave that up to the intensely talented folks who crafted it: “As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die.’

Have I got you properly intrigued? Good. Watch it after the break!

The Backwater Gospel was produced by The Animation Workshop (website).

Have a question? Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting.
