some of you didn't see this film in 3D theaters when you were six and it shows...#TraumatizedForLifeGang
But seriously, can we just take a moment to appreciate the revolutionary LAIKA Studios and this absolute gem of a film? I have so many stories that relate to this film, I practically raised myself on it. Countless October nights were spent watching it, and then attempting to go to sleep afterward but failing. I've always found myself attracted to this film because of its disturbing atmosphere and themes, even as a child. It's unnervingly realistic and one of the best animated films ever made.
