Watch: Lee Hardcastle's Animated 'T is for Toilet' Sequel 'Ghost Burger'
"Whoa, you killed a big one!" Holy crap this is awesome. If you're a genre/horror fan, you most likely saw The ABCs of Death from Drafthouse Films, featuring 27 horror shorts. One of the best shorts in it was "T is For Toilet" (watch it online here), a claymation/stop-motion animated short directed by Lee Hardcastle about an evil toilet that taunts a young kid. Hardcastle returns this year with "epic sequel" to T is For Toilet titled Ghost Burger, about two kids (one is the same kid from T is For Toilet) who go hunting for ghosts to help their dad run a burger cafe. Yes, there is plenty of gore, plenty of weapons, plenty of ghosts and evil everyday objects coming to life and tormenting claymation people. Need I say more? I think not. Have fun!
Hat tip to SlashFilm for the tip on this. As described by director Lee Hardcastle on YouTube: "Two kids go hunting for ghosts to help their dad run a burger cafe. An epic sequel to 'T is For Toilet [ABCs of Death]', 12 years after the accident." Ghost Burger was written & directed by UK animation filmmaker Lee Hardcastle, featuring a score by Dave Andrews and music from USA Nail. To see more of Hardcastle's claymation work, head to his YouTube page or follow him on Twitter or Facebook. He's also selling Ghost Burger t-shirts and some other swag on his Spreadshirt page. Even if some of the characters look a bit crude, Hardcastle's work is impressive and deserves the acclaim. I love his tag: "I make claymations that are not for children's eyes."
