The absence of Eddy Table

Rune Spaans (NO)

Eddy Table, known from the comics of Dave Cooper, makes his screen debut in this animated short.

What if your worst fear and your greatest love turn out to be the same thing? Lost in a dark forest, Eddy Table stumbles upon a mysterious girl and dangerous parasites.

He should escape, but something keeps him from leaving. Rune Spaans’ romantic horror short is based on the works of Canadian artist Dave Cooper.
