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, this is the type of place you could vomit into your hands then smeared it over your own face and would fit right in at Backwater . Crass 3D animation melded with an illusion of stop motion plunge you into caricatures of sullied humans living under the shadow of a wraith known as the Undertaker. Intrusive close ups expose the evil spirits at work in men’s hearts and, surprisingly, an acoustic guitar. Please, don’t watch with the lights off.
The Blackwater gospel has an extremely dark storyline the animation is wonderfully presented it is both original and engaging the director and everyone else involved in producing this short animation deserves a round of applause by #BO-MATHORNE and #Esben-Jacob-Sloth.
