Editorial Reviews

Gregory Horror Show is a CG-animated horror/comedy program, set in an alternate dimension and populated by surreal and imaginative characters. Each episode is dominated by Gregory, the evil proprietor of Gregory House. On the surface, each inhabitant of this "hotel for lost souls" represents a universal, everyday fear. But even this appearance is camouflaged by the bright plumage of insecurity hiding inner conflicts and subtlety of character. Each episode will be partly funny, partly scary and always challenging for the viewer as well as being unrelentingly entertaining! Though not meant to be educational, there are cores aspects of empowerment, tolerance, patience, imagination, self-exploration and overcoming fear in nearly every episode. So enjoy your stay in Gregory House. As Gregory himself says, "If you're here, you've already paid for your room well in advance."

Gregory Horror Show is the story of a hotel for lost souls run by its mysterious proprietor Gregory, a misshapen rat who takes pleasure in scaring his customers out of their wits. The main character (he has no name, but he's obviously meant to represent the viewer, as you see the world through his eyes) makes his way to Gregory House in the middle of the night, and finds that checking in is easy; checking out is the hard part. If Gregory doesn't stop him, then the other guests will. And there's also the question of whether you would want to leave at all...

Gregory Horror is a surreal and sometimes disturbing horror-comedy feature that challenges the viewer in every episode. Its short, almost Twilight Zoneish episodes focus on one of the guests at a time, each of which represent a different facet of the viewer's personality or world. There's the Mirror Man, who has lost his own identity and exists only to show others their true self; Cactus Gunman, who challenges the other guests to hallway duels without any idea of why they're fighting; Judgement Boy, who forces guests to make split-second decisions with either their heart or their head; and many more, totaling 48 in all. (Not all are in this first DVD, however.) The stories can be chilling one minute and hilarious the next, and your host Gregory is the thread stringing them all together. I will say that the story begins to develop and pick up in the last half of the series, which culminates in a weird, fulfilling ending that's sure to creep out and satisfy even the stingiest viewer.

Gregory Horror is illustrated in a strange style. It's 3DCG, and each character has a blocky body, almost like they were made out of Legos.

I am a sucker for stories that have deep meanings, deal with the darker parts of human nature and make you want to think. The Gregory Horror Show is an amazing piece of animation. It has a deep storyline, dark morals and a cast of characters you will never forget.
I warn you, this is not for the very young or faint of heart, as it contains coarse language and other "suggestive" parts. Still, if you are prepared for an emotionally mature adventure, then I highly recommend this.

Gregory is like art. You may love it, you may hate it, but you will think about it long after you see it. It reminds me of the old computer games that were blocky. At first it turns you off as cheap, but then you realize it is an excellent way to convey mood. it kind of creeps you out in the way anime bad guys wear masks and you don't really know what goes on behind them. Some of it is silly, some disturbing, some over the top, but over all it''s compelling. It''s one of those things you watch when you're chillin' and thoughtful. It will annoy anyone looking for an action fix as most of it cerebral. My first viewing I didn't care for it, but after a while I watched it again and now am planning to buy #2.

I love this dvd! The characters look like they are made of folded paper to me rather than blocks. All of the characters are interesting in different and kinda creepy ways. This is not for little kids but I have three teenagers and they all love it. Each segment has a little life lesson to get you thinking.
