All things considered, I dig the animation style. But why the character design had to be anthropomorphic is beyond me.
The entire film is sort of an example of wasted potential. There are a ton of flaws to it (bad lip-synching, weird facial expressions, a bizarre and incomprehensible plot) but there's a lot of cool and innovative things as well (Like the way the demon was animated)
I think if this movie had been more successful Nelvana could have gone on to make some really good shit instead of developing nothing but a string of mediocre children's cartoons.
So much promise, wasted
Edit: unless you tried using human heads and they looked dreadful.
I will kick the shit out of anyone who says or even implies Eek the Cat was mediocre.
Hey man, Not Cool. My totem animal is a human head with a weird nose.
Don't get me wrong, I got nothing against cartoon characters that happen to be animals that walk upright. What I don't get is the weird flesh toned animals with nothing distinguishing them as animals save for ears and strange noses. It all just ends up making them look like freakish humans.
The movie is set well after WWIII when only mutated animals survived. That was the concept, hence anthropomorphic characters.
Furry. There. I said what was on the tip of everyone's tongue.
*I think* the female is the catalyst of why this style decision comes off strange. Where they sort of pick and choose between stylized human and animal anatomy to follow with the others, they definitely went 95% stylized human with her (I think her ears and nose are the only animal parts of her design). All good, because I mean, she needs to be somewhat attractive.
...also if this were Japanese, that demon would have totally raped her...and then been defeated by her sexual powers...
Sorry, MOSTLY mediocre children's cartoons. I was unaware they produced Eek

A lotta rotoscoping, unless I'm mistaken. The bizarre texture in some of the initial demon shots are calf brains shot under glass, according to wikipedia.
AND needs Debbie Harry tag.

Nobody seems to care about the people who got eaten.
Everyone was too busy wondering how that blouse stayed glued to the chick's tits.

Is this where they got the idea for using guitars as melee weapons in "Left 4 Dead 2?"

Despite all of its flaws, this movie is great. Also, the monster reminds me of Gigas.

I saw this one night at an animation buff's house after a party. Everyone was talking and there I was entranced like a complete fool watching this movie.
