Alice in vodooland is a short music video Directed by Kousuke Sugimoto taking a surreal horrific take on Lewis Carrol's iconic children story Alice in Wonderland. Alice in vodooland is a music video for artists RoughSketch a DJ who does Hardcore/Gabber music and Aikapin the vocalist who has worked with RoughSketch on multiple occasions. Alice in voodooland is an Edgy, dark "Anime" that takes you on a 2 minute long cocaine binge.
The story Follows who I assume is Alice is taken into what I assume is wonderland by the white rabbit, it is soon revealed that wonderland is less of a wonderland and more
of a Hell, we see various characters Cheshire Cat, the mad hatter so on, Alice is soon corrupted and from what I gather the more she kills the more armour or limbs she grows.
The story is basically Alice in wonderland but instead of it being sweet, nice and happy all around its full of dark edgy shit. The story feels like a 14 year old boy trying to act cool, rather than a coherent story that makes sense, the entire story is girl kill. People die. The end.
The art is actually very good, the use of what looks like paper mache's and stop motion is nice, its novel and unique and is easily the best part about this "anime''
For a music video you would expect good music, but the music consists of screaming and obnoxiously loud EDM music, if that's what your into, more power to you, for me, not so much.
Characters, what are characters?
Bit harsh but very true, there are no characters, not that I expected much character development from a 2 minute music video but I digress. The characters are basically 0 note versions of there original characters, they are basically just cardboard cutouts not really characters, they have nothing unique about them other than, I'm edgy and disturbing.
For a 2 minute video, It was quite a chore to get through, it was very boring nothing was interesting about it, sure the animation was nice but it ended there, nothing made me want to watch more of it.
It's a harmless music video that has good animation but terrible music, plot and characters, it's not offensive but it's not something I would recommend, if you enjoy gore and horror, give it a chance you may enjoy it, other than that I wouldn't waste my time. But if you really do want to watch it, you can find it on youtube with a quick search.
