No Monsters

Finding out humans are the real monsters is one of the saddest discoveries we make as we grow up, well, that and the fact that monsters of myth, legend and the movies aren't real, because at least then they'd even the score.

Instead we are faced with humans who hide behind masks, pretending they have our best interest at heart when all the while they're just trying to imprison us and drain us dry.

No Monsters is a scary little animated short by David James Armsby of Dead Sound, a sequel of sorts to Armsby's previous Autodale short Being Pretty. They aren't exactly what you'd call feel good animation!

This part, at least, seems to show that the dystopia makes use of 'exceptional' people by connecting their brains and vital organs to a machine (possibly as utility modules, reminiscent of "Mr. Spock and the Planet of Brain-stealing Bimbos"). The mother here describes her daughter as 'exceptional' many times, and wants her to be reassured that there are no monsters, and that the 'handymen' are to be trusted.

So the mother is cultivating her own daughter to be a utility module, and ensuring that, when the time comes for her to be harvested, she will not run away.
