By now, I think we all realize that the people behind Adult Swim are absolutely bonkers. The utter insanity of some of their shows cannot be denied. Shows like Metalocalypse, The Eric Andre Show, Robot Chicken, and Moral Orel are but a few examples of the twisted sense of humor that the network proudly boasts. Now, it appears that they want to elicit more demented laughs with the reveal of an upcoming series by the name of The Shivering Truth, a horror-infused surrealist black comedy series that looks like the cast aside baby of Charlie Kaufman and Wes Anderson.
The network has released a trailer for the show, which is created by longtime South Park produce Vernon Chatman. While the trailer makes it seem like a pure horror experience that feels right at place next to a show like Channel Zero. That being said, the pilot has been released and is available to watch online. Having just watched it, I can tell you that it’s packed full of absurdist humor, the kind of stuff that you will watch and not sure if you should laugh, wince, or look at your friends and ask, “What the fuck?”
“The Shivering Truth is a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic. A series of loosely linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion – in other words, it is the truth.”
The Shivering Truth premieres on Adult Swim December 9 at Midnight.
