Malice In Wonderland by Vince Collins circa 1982Juxtapoz // Saturday, 18 Feb 2012
This animated short circa 1982 titled "Malice in Wonderland" by Vince Collins takes you through a terrifying psychedelic adventure through morphing and shifting shapes that refer to op art as much as they do to grotesque distortions of bodily form. Roughly based on Lewis Carroll's Alice and Wonderland with characters like Alice, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and the Chesire Cate making appearances, the film still seems to be in its own world of insanity. Not for the squeamish or the easily offended, this short dives through an array of morphing orifices that seem to warp into other dimensions. Although twenty-years-old, "Malice In Wonderland" still stands as a disturbing, yet fascinating piece of animation.
