Lupo the Butcher is a hilarious short animated film and one of
my happy memories from my university days. They used to show it on the
big screen at the Diamond Club (it’s now called The Phoenix) during
last call. My friend Ryan Murphy gave me a QuickTime copy of the film,
and it became a regular feature whenever people came over to visit.
Unfortunately, Lupo was one of those files that I failed to transfer to
later computers and I’d forgotten all about it until Darryl Wiggers
(program director for Scream, Canada’s horror movie channel and all
’round ace dude) sent me a copy. Here it is, for your enjoyment [2.9MB QuickTime — Warning: Cartoon gore, loads of swearing].
International Rocketship, the animation company that made Lupo the Butcher, went on to make the funny and disturbing Far Side animated special. If anyone know how to acquire a copy of that little gem, please let me know!
