Hey North House
Here’s what I have for you. It’s an animation called “The Backwater Gospel” that is more gruesome than most, but I can tell that it offers more than just bloodshed. I was fascinated by the overarching concept that fear can drive anyone to madness. I want to know what you guys have to say about it.
Before you watch the video, you should have an understanding the background of the video. It’s just a simple explanation the creator gives that I didn’t read on my first watching.
“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.”
Prompt: Is religion the main focus in this video or is there a deeper meaning being conveyed? Pick a character from the video and explain their significance to the meaning of the video. Use quotes, scenes, or rhetorical devices to explain your reasoning.
