That’s probably a strange thing to say, but really, this super adorable little short film managed to make a dog transforming into a tentacled eldritch nightmare into something rather cute, which is quite the feat.

Featuring a blend of hand-drawn art and 3D assets, Kris Theorin’s Mary & Marsha in The Manor of Madness is a cutesy tale of two women in love, and their attempts to escape a manor staffed by tentacle-head butlers and sinister cultists in something that ends up being a fun mix between Scooby Doo-esque goofballery and creepy cosmic horror.
