30 Days of Horror: Day 2

Today let’s delve into something a little unusual. 0.0Mhz is a webtoon I stumbled across some years ago when I had a horror craving in the middle of the night. I couldn’t put it down until I’d run out of pages and then I couldn’t sleep because I was trapped under the blankets, in the dark and for a rare wonder I was terrified of what lay behind the warm and close confines of my own blanket.

It’s vivid portrayal of the summoning ceremony in 0.0 Mhz sent chills through this experienced witch (aka do not try this). The dark and desaturated colors and limply dragging characters, whose very hair seems oddly weighted down, lends such an impressive oppressive atmosphere. Jump scares aren’t always an easy thing to do with a static webtoon but it definitely pressed on my fear button good and hard.

Looks like recently this gem, like so many other webtoons has gotten a live action adaptation! The world is a quickly evolving place, for a public fed up with remakes, the internet is a treasure trove of fresh ideas and fresh art styles. Some studios are taking notice and creating content, films, radio plays, animation, to varying degrees of skill, scale and care of course.

And that’s Day 2 down! Tomorrow, I don’t know, maybe a game. See you later voodoo loves.
