The Shivering Truth is a stop-motion horror anthology series created by Vernon Chatman. The series features the voice talent of Superbad’s Michael Cera and Jonah Hill. This is a bold new step in adult animation because this show doesn’t appear to focus on rude humor like most of Adult Swim’s other offerings. The amount of practical elements constructed in stop-motion is also very impressive.
I hope this series does well and networks continue to push animated television into new genres. In addition to Horror I’d like to see animated Thrillers, Crime Noirs, Period Pieces, Romances, Mysteries, and R-rated Action shows, just to name a few.
The Shivering Truth premiers this Sunday, Dec. 9th on Adult Swim.
