Comments: We see a tattoo artist at work. She is good at what she does. When she goes home weird stuff starts happening.
The animated characters are done without noses. The animation though does look great. The movement is smooth.
Debra gets fascinated by a tattoo design. Meanwhile, what is going on with the pussy cats? It is strange. Then the destruction starts. Is this the beginning of the end
This movie is very weird. The invasion once started continues and keeps getting weirder as it goes on. What is up with the snake? The movie is fun yet hard to figure out.
The fighting does get bloody. The witch is cool as she goes on the attack.
There are so many mysteries and unanswered questions here. Why are things happening in this movie? What or who is Lava?
For Debra, things keep snowballing as she is stressed by all that is going on and trying to figure it out. Nothing is fully explained.
The best part of this animated film is Debra comes across as a real person thrown into an unreal situation. She is your average everyday woman that gets put in the middle of this alien invasion.
