Not arguing that this is the best animation the world has ever seen, but at the time, it was exquisite. It’s good to be reminded of the movie you have just taken in. This sums things up, like a chapter summary. It puts the arc of the story in perspective. Running Scared has thee standout scene of any movie going. It involves kids in a lair and it makes the whole thing. It feels like it should belong in another movie, almost. A mini movie within a movie. It’s harrowing darkness is softened by the cool execution. Plus, it’s a blatant nod to Freddy Kruger. This would have been a treat to see at the cinema. One that got away, in that regard.
