Momma Told Me | Animated Horror Short

An animated horror short by Jacob Michael King. What happens to all the hitchhikers who disappear? Maybe it’s worse than you think. Connie gets a ride with a man who seems perfectly nice, but then she notices three bodies beneath a tarp in his truck bed. It starts with a hitchhiker in trouble, and ends as a cosmic nightmare…

“Momma Told Me” is the first story anyone ever offered me money to publish. I was thrilled. But the magazine folded before I had the chance to see my work in print. Here it is. I hope you enjoy.
