From the comedically unhinged mind of T. E. Antonino comes a comedy-thriller, short in duration, but with madness as inescapable as the echoes of a long-abandoned swamp. Madness shows up when you're born, when you die, and, in Marvin Snicks's case, everywhere in between. Haunted by an incessant croaking coming from the woods around his home, Marvin finds himself being pulled deeper and deeper into the jaws of insanity, as if by a gigantic, sticky tongue. The heinous croaking erodes his sanity day after day, driving him to an obsession that affects every facet of his life. Even the company therapist, with her five-year junior college degree, seems to be pushing Marvin deeper and deeper into the inescapable mire of feverish delusion. In the end, it's man against beast in a twisted, final showdown.
