The Backwater Gospel

The Blackwater Gospel is a dark animation set in a religious god-fearing town of Backwater. The local man of the cloth preaches a fearful sermon about the one member of the town who refuses to be a member of his congregation. The townspeople are scared enough by the priest and the arrival of Death just increases the tension to near breaking. Now all they can do is wait for someone to die.

Is this an indictment about the dangers of religion? Is it a commentary on the social unrest at the present times? You decide for yourself.
