Playground Horror Series Trailer

Come play at this playground, you'll never want to leave… A French Portuguese animator named Rodrigo Goulão de Sousa has created this 60-second trailer as a proof-of-concept for an animated series. I'm not sure any studio would be brave enough to produce this, perhaps only Adult Swim or Shudder or Screambox. Playground is the title of this animated horror series, featuring two kids who end up stuck in a nightmare playground full of endless horrors, monsters, mindfucks, and more. The amount of "WTF is that thing?!?!" creature design he packed into these 60 seconds is just amazing. Look at all of them! I would totally watch this series, even though some of these monsters seriously scare the shit out of me. 😱 Definitely not for kids.
