That was sadder than the opening bit in Pixar’s UP.
Everything about this was perfect. The animation could not be any better; the lack of actual words yet it still portrays rich emotion. In the beginning, it shows how a family can continue on. But as it goes, it shows that tragedy can still happen. Life is life.
There are tears rolling down my face, and the only thing I would criticize is that felt no closure in the end. When the screen went black it felt like my heart stopped because I didn’t want it to end.
This is the Buckley Family. The children’s names were Susan and John. As a Halloween joke, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get a dummy and pretend to chop its head off. The Buckley children thought it would be hilarious to actually murder their mother, so when the kids walked up the the door, they got an axe and slaughtered her. Once everyone figured out what they had really done, they called the police, but the kids were long gone by then. The only picture of them was this photo, taken by a trick or treater. The mothers body was later found half eaten.
