      it was scary? you’re going to watch it again?

      • Phonow

        more creepy than scary. watched it late at night. i can’t remember the dream i had… but it was weird. haha.

        i might watch it again. i like the animation & it actually told a story. not overtly sexual & no gratuitous violence. well done. :)

          short and sweet, a bit causitc. i like the girl but her ending was good in a poignant way. unexpected.

          and, of course, ellis doesn’t have me wrapped around her fingers like that spider girl has the bookseller.

            lol. ellis has daddy wrapped around her little finger… because she’s the sweetest little gal around. :) no supernatural spidy charm here.

            gosh, nowadays i cringe when i see the word supernatural. jlin uses that word in his xian testimony. shudder.

            but i digress.

            the film is based on japanese folklore… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jor%C5%8Dgumo the temptress beautiful spider using males as a midnight snack. I wonder how many cultures have similar myths–(spider woman devours male lover).

            did a quickie google. mostly spider weaving & creation myths. might not be searching correctly. lol

            what about mantis mating ritual?

            “Though the logger soon realizes that the woman was a spider, he cannot forget his love for her.”

            he is whipped

            you know, these ladies may be on to something. lol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_cannibalism

            reminds me of the banana slug. individuals are hermaphrodites. when they mate, well… read this. http://www.lastwordonnothing.com/2014/05/06/tgipf-the-weird-world-of-banana-slug-sex/

            yah next stage in human evolution. it’s the sex shifting animals that out “compete” the non sex shifting animals. that is if the non sex shifting animals don’t stone the sex shifting animals to death first. now i understand why so many people hate homosexuals. similar to why, like in xmen, people hate mutants. they are scared to be kicked off the top of the food chain.

        oh… btw… you are starting to get weird “followers” on your profile page.

        • dd

          dunno what the purpose of these weird followers are but they pop in and seem harmless. i manually remove them from time to time but gets tedious
