The Questioning - Animorphs Video

This fan video was made by a bunch of nostalgic twenty-something nerds who read the Animorphs series, like I did. If you're unfamiliar, the Animorphs was a book series, much like Goosebumps, targeted towards a slightly older audience that featured five human youths and an alien against a parasitic alien race who were secretly enslaving the human race, a-la "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." However, the Animorphs, as they came to call themselves, were not entirely helpless - they were given the power to "morph," or acquire the DNA of any animal they could get their hands on, for two hours at a time.

The main difference between Goosebumps and Animorphs, however, were the themes - Goosebumps merely aimed to scare its readers, whereas Animorphs actually featured questions of morality, loss of innocence, death and the effects of war.

Super tragic. However, this is a fan-made video about the Animorphs which is actually really good. If you're intrigued, check it out.
