This surreal computer-animated horror comedy show from Japan takes place in Gregory House, a "hotel for lost souls." Each short three-minute episode is about a different inhabitant of the hotel, each of whom represents a fear of something, such as evil doctors or malicious children. While part horror and part comedy, Gregory Horror Show manages to carry through messages of tolerance and introspection beneath its bizarre exterior. For instance, one story tells of a businessman who is tormented by the frightening features of Gregory House and realizes how important his family is to him. He returns to them, only to have further work ahead of him in separating his new wild imagination from reality.
