Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party is clearly not a film to take your kid to. There might be a long tradition of adult-themed cartoon shows on TV networks, but when it comes to animated feature films, many people have the mistaken perception that they are exclusively targeted towards children. To an extent this makes sense, since the genre was massively popularized by Walt Disney and his kid-friendly studio productions. While there’s a lot of kids-oriented animations that appeal to grown-ups too (Disney/Pixar has been doing a terrific job here), there are also many animated films made solely for adults, just waiting to be discovered.
There is a great deal of pluralism in adult animated films, both thematically and technically. Animation directors from all around the world have been continuously advancing the medium, experimenting with various cinematic genres, such as science fiction and fantasy, dark comedy, social drama, political documentary, and even graphic horror.
