Danse Macabre Cartoon (1980)

This cartoon is more illustrated then animated, but the music by Camille Saint-Saëns is undeniably awesome. I think the visuals work in a slow creepy way.

One thought on “Danse Macabre Cartoon (1980)

  1. Ah, from the “We don’t have money to animate it, so let’s color the storyboards and film that” school of film-making.

    Still, you’re right; it’s a stirring performance of Danse Macabre, and the visuals are tightly edited.
