Pixar has remixed their wonderfully heartwarming CGI classic Monsters, Inc. into an amusing silent, four-minute, black-and-white animation with such vintage cinematic tricks as intertitles, exaggerated jump scares, and an old-timey piano rag playing in the background. (synopsis (c) Laughing Squid)
What a delight!
As if Monsters Inc. was already a emotionally resonant delight, Pixar has found a way to make it even more so and add in some extra laughs into the bargain!
Announcing to people by Pixar that “It’s scarin’ time!”, Pixar encourages everyone to “Grab your popcorn and watch Mike and Sulley fill up those scream canisters in this classic silent film style” and honestly, that’s exactly what you should do.
You’ll get drama and action, laughter and raw emotion and the kind of slapstick overacting that bring a smile to the face and joy to the heart.
It’s a genius move that’s guaranteed to make your day feel silently better.
Let the door chasing begin anew!
