We got a special sneak peek at Chadam artist Alex Pardee's latest show, "Letters From Digested Children." Its creepy brilliance all hinges on the experience, which includes a monstrous installation, a video and pages upon pages of child-eating monsters. The Teddy Bear monster, and the video screen shots below, are an exclusive never-before-seen treat, just for io9 readers.

Here are two screen shots from the video installation that will be included in the show, featuring real children living inside a monster. Looks like a call for help from inside the belly of the beast. The film is directed by Steven Reedy.
