Love, Death, And Robots: ‘Fish Night’ Analysis

by Tito W. James

Based on the short story by  Joe. R. Lansdale, Fish Night follows a father and son sales team who become stranded in a desert and have an otherworldly encounter.

This short also incorporates cell-shaded animation. The heavy linework style reminds me of Borderlands but the facial expressions are a bit stiff.

The moment where the aquatic spirits appear is one of the most uplifting moments in the entire anthology. The heartwarming moment subsides when the dark side of the spirit world shows up in the form of a megalodon shark.

Love, Death, and Robots is currently streaming on Netflix.
