“Ephialtes”, daimon or spirit of the nightmares, the greek equivalent of the incubus and succubus (Latin) spirits taking the form of men and women respectively to torment humans introduced in his dreams. Sale of the land as if it flows from his body a flowery garden, turn off the shadows and rests her disfigured face in the mirror. The creatures passing in the night the maze dreamed upsetting the fragile break their way. The silence stuns spectra caged floating in the air, buried fears.

Efialtes, daimon o espirítu de las pesadillas, equivalente griego de los íncubos y súcubos (latín), espíritus que adoptaban la forma de hombres o mujeres respectivamente para atormentar a los humanos introduciéndose en sus sueños. Sale de la tierra como si brotase de su cuerpo un jardín floreado, se apagan las sombras y reposa su rostro en el espejo desfigurado. Las criaturas transitan en la noche el laberinto soñado, alterando a su paso el frágil descanso – El silencio aturde a los espectros enjaulados, flotando en el aire los miedos enterrados.


Ephialtes – TRT 4:46 mins.

Wow. Very cool use of stop motion animation. It was very unsettling at times, like a nightmare. I enjoyed the scenes in the dark, where a flashlight seemed to be the only light source. I also really liked the diver battling the octopus.

captured the erie vibe well. Audio sets the mood and the time lapsing effects bring the objects to life! scared to dream tonight

A good concept with fear in the darkness and with what one can deal with within a dream.

Really unique, creative, and thought-provoking video. It is a very well-made stop motion. The creepy music definitely adds to the feel, and I especially thought the lighted up clown doll was really scary! The idea of buried fears was portrayed really well by the idea of shutting a door on your nightmares, as happens several times in the film. I like that the video is funny and quirky, yet really creepy, and also something that all of us can relate to.
