It’s October, and spooky season is here.

We love a good spook here at RADII. So we were naturally very excited to come upon this short, sweet, but brilliant work of Chinese-style horror by artist Damien Soh and Universal Studios Singapore.

Pagoda of Peril offers a nefarious netherworld nightmare, where the narrator wanders through hell in a dreamlike state. As it goes on, more context unfolds, along with a veritable buffet of classical Chinese ghosts and ghouls (you might recognize some of them from our near-exhaustive list of classical Chinese ghosts and ghouls).

It’s gorgeous. It’s captivating. It’s spooky as sh*t, and we love it. We hope you do too — this one’s definitely worth a second watch.
