The Sandman (1991)

Posted on November 7, 2012


The Sandman was nominated for a short animation Oscar in 1993. In this twisted stop-motion short movie the figure of the Sandman, who is traditionally said to bring pleasant dreams by sprinkling sand onto the eyes of sleeping children, is turned into a much darker character. It is time for bed but a little girl is afraid of the dark upstairs of her crooked house. Once the girl is in bed, the moon-faced Sandman enters the house… but what does he seek?
