HOWL FROM BEYOND THE FOG (Atami Kaiju Film Festival Atami Japan 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Howl From Beyond the Fog—unusually creative puppet movie—does not have puppets with mouths that move, but the way this team used its choreography, it does not matter. Japanese voicing is well-chosen and well supported with good English subtitles. This is a great short film.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Creative Japanese team created a good monster short movie. Watch for the ending of the film that contains background information on how the water monster was made and marketed. Great work for all involved.
