Have toy ever thought about Totoro having a darker side to the lovable character? well KILAS AKA Zahir Sanosi has turned one of our all time greatest Studio Ghibli characters into something much darker and sinister. KILAS has an unhealthy obsession with mortality, spirits and anything occult so Gucha Gucha is born…. or reincarnation.
“The appeal of Miyazaki’s films is that they can be enjoyed equally by adults and children. While children enjoy the innocence and naivety of the films, adults can interpret their meanings in an ominous sense. My Neighbor Totoro is such a film where the lines of life and death are blurred, giving us the ability to transcend perceptions of what is real and unreal, good and evil.
It is granted that Totoro is a mystical creature that only Mei and Satsuki can see. His presence is linked to the trauma of their sick mother who is on death’s door. Some can go as far to say that Totoro is death itself, alleviating the girls to the fact that they will lose their mother and maybe even themselves in this unforgiving world.
