“The Sleischers” by Tim Razumovsky & Eyal Oren (NSFW)

Tim Razumovsky & Eyal Oren’s third year student film at the Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design/Israel, is an R-rated tribute to 70s trash films “a la Rodriguez & Tarantino”. Says Razumovsky:

“The film is a kind of short pilot episode which will hopefully become a series in the future. The main characters are a pair of twisted married assassins and the title “The Sleischers” is actually their family name. “The Sleischers” is a sort of a pun for the word “slashers” and a hint that both characters speak with heavy foreign accent and their origin remains unclear. The film is a marriage of various kinky B-Movies that we like. As for the plot, I’ve heard a couple of interesting theories about it – such as hidden religious or feminist messages in it.”

It’s Not Safe For Work, nor for the sweamish. Submitted for your approval, The Sleischers:

    They could stand to invest in a little Black Flag. I would like to see a little more character development, but the look of the piece is intriguing. Decent design, but presently just good enough for Spike & Mike, if they still did new Sick & Twisted fests, that is.

  • Rice

    This is the vibe that MTV seventies-themed animated show of a few years ago should have gone for.

  • Darkblader

    If doug tennapel did an R rated cartoon that went horribly wrong this is what it would look like. Although, it looks more like the stuff you’d use to see on MTV because it became garbage.

    I was using your website as a teaching tool for my 9-17 year olds art class and they’re all fans of the site. I guess this is lesson learned that I have to be more cautious when it comes to content I share with my students. It’s a real shame because we all enjoyed your site.

      This post was clearly marked NSFW in the headline and repeated twice in the text. It’s a real shame you didn’t read the post first.

  • Patrick Daley

    I did read it. I just hope that the kids don’t.

      Surprise! Animation isn’t a kiddie art form!

        Bwah-ha-ha-haaaAA!!!

        Love it!

        As elegantly said by one of my favorite animators Ralph Bakshi, “Animation is any goddamn thing you want it to be!”

      If not you’ll have some explaining to do for the parents.

      Let’s be pragmatic. It wouldn’t have been a problem if the video were shown after the jump. NSFW warnings don’t matter much when there’s a woman sucking the penis of a man with a loaded gun in plain view.

  • bambi

    Amazingly done TRASH ANIMATION at it best!!!

  • christy

    I think it was a brilliant animation. I didn’t quite get the impression that the characters were married because of the ‘do you love me’ dialogue. Personally, I’ve gotten tired of highly anthropmorphizing animals as a way to make them humorous. It’s the stock choice for cartoons, it seems, to be deliberately ignorant about other animals and there’s so much more potential exaggerating animals as animals.

    Don’t want to harp on that point. It isn’t very relevant to what the creators had in mind. It’s an interesting exploitation short, and I like how the husband and wife have big lips but small eyeballs, and how it goes with the exploitation theme. The ashy background aesthetic is beautiful.

    Very good visuals. Although it shows that it’s a student film with limited time and budget, what’s there is really promising. I can imagine a feature done in this style and it would be fun to watch.

    However, what the creators reveal about their characters doesn’t do much for me. I’m fed up with stories about killers, even when they’re brilliantly told.

    Hey, stop putting NSFW and just type the words in caps and bold and larger, perhaps before the title of the topic and yes, you do see something some younger readers might not should be seeing before clicking play.

    As for the material it looks interesting and all but I expected more from the description rather than what I saw in the trailer.

  • Mike Johnson

    Pixar should jump all over this. Start another label, like Disney did with Touchstone, and give the animators free reign. Imagine the roster of films they could do:

    * Adult Toy Story (hey…there’s already two toys named “Woody” and “Buzz”)

    * A Bug’s Death

    * Grinding Nemo

    * Monster’s Kink

    * The Incrediballs

    * Scars

    * Rat Doody

    * MAUL-E

    * Up Yours

    You know you’d go and see these…you KNOW you would!
