The Horror Honeys: Saturday Morning Horror Cartoon ~ 'Roggenmuhme'

Saturday Morning Horror Cartoon ~ 'Roggenmuhme'


First off, for some reason YouTube lists the subtitle of today's Horror Cartoon, Roggenmuhme, as "Never Go Alone in the Corn Fields." Roggenmuhme is German for "Rye Mother," which makes sense after you watch the cartoon, which takes place in a rye field. So seriously, nothing to do with corn. Don't come at me with, "oh... it's just a Children of the Corn rip-off."

Second, Julies Dettmer's Roggenmuhme is a tremendously creepy horror cartoon, so get ready kiddies!

Represented through an exceptionally unique animation style, The Legend of the Rye Mother will leave you utterly chilled... Not necessarily through the final reveal, but in the anticipation of it as we follow our little girl heroine. Roggenmuhme has no dialogue, but the swelling score and simple visuals will be enough to leave you chilled to the bone.

Enjoy Roggenmuhme, and be sure to let me know what you think of the Rye Mother herself! And as always...

Have a spooky Saturday, creepy kids!
