Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ensemble Darkhorse: The twins, Inmu and Yanku, donít speak and the viewers are never told anything about their past or lives in general and yet they are rather popular with fans.
Epileptic Trees: In one of the final scenes, we see the now demonic Hikkora standing against a stone pillar, counting to ten, and four shadowy forms about his own size scamper off, giggling happily. We don't see them too clearly, and they don't look much like any of the other children...so who are they?
Executive Meddling: In the original script, the losing children were killed and horribly devoured by the demons, but the higher-ups thought it was too horrific even by the short's standard...Ironically, the ending they did approve of was more disturbing.
And definitely not after dark. You won't see statues the same way, either.
Viewer Gender Confusion: The twins. It's kinda hard to tell their gender, especially since you can't see their faces, and they never say anything in the entire short. But Word of God says they're boys.
