The Horror is weird & Jesus fly on a cloud

Hola, Christmas is here and we wanted to share this game art and this amazing animated gif with all the people of China.

Chico: Who cares about Christmas? The end of the world is here! Sálvese quien pueda!

Yes but don't be afraid Chico, I think this is the Parousia.

Chico: What?!

The second coming of Lord Jesus Christ to our planet... flying in the sky... risen in a cloud... I'm not kidding... soooo lets talk about Catequesis meanwhile we wait looking at the sky.

Chico: Ok. Great art pal, it is really weird.

Gracias, I relied on the work of Maruo and Junji Ito, this two mangakas represent what I told the last week, the weird japanese touch, this sick way to see the fear. Sometimes I read occidental creators talking about the fear, the classic less is more, if you don't show the monster to the player/viewer, he will be more scared, imagining the horrors hidden in the dark. I don't totally agree with that, it's a fact. But I'd like to complement this with two more facts, the "not understand" and the "collective unconscious".

Chico: Wait, this is like a lot of cultures around the world have the same perception of god?

Yes, and this a perfect example of both concepts my dear Chico. In one side we have the symbols written in our mind like serial, the survival of our specie give us fear of the blood, dark, fangs, claws or spiders and snakes. In the other side we have the things that we can't understand. This two concepts forge the elements of fear, and mixed with the concept of "don't show the monster" can be really powerful in horror. But, what happen when I want to give a step into the dark? keep the fear, or show the monster? I know how to show it, and I will tell you...

Chico: When?

Well... OH MY GOOoooOOOoooOD! Jesus flying rise on a cloud!
