Sick and Twisted returns to The Loft with an all-new show for 2013! Get ready to get twisted with some of the most delightfully depraved, debauched and disgusting animated shorts you’ve ever seen! They don’t call it Sick and Twisted for nothing.
Spike and Mike, those debauched purveyors of all that is sick and twisted, are back with their annual barrage of animated shorts that run the gamut from gross to ought-to-be-illegal. Now in its 24th year, the Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation compiles the most entertaining, disgusting, revolting, and downright hilarious short animation from all over the world and unleashes it in the form of this traveling film festival, which plays in over 50 cities across North America each year. If you think you’ve seen everything, if you think there’s nothing that can shock you … think again! Before there was an Oscar for “Best Animated Film”, before there were hundred million dollar grosses for animated movies, before there were icons like Beavis and Butt-Head, Homer and Bart, or Shrek and Donkey, before all that… practically before there was life on the planet, there was Spike and Mike. For more than two decades they have been the leading presenters of cutting-edge animation and cartoons, from quirky hand drawn gems to elaborate computer generated productions. Sick and Twisted is the longest running festival of its kind, and has played a major role in helping the animation medium reach its current, dizzying heights of popularity. What future classics will rise from the depths of depravity this year? There’s only one way to find out!
