From Gnik_LJN :

This is a particularly thrilling Popeye cartoon, with malicious ghosts wreaking havoc to the rhythm of "Sing You Sinners"/"SWING You Sinners". Unhinged Fleischer cartoon grotesquery at its zenith here. ------ Some scenes in this cartoon are far more horrifying if you think about them. When Popeye, Olive and Wimpy are surrounded by huge ghosts, they get into a violent fight, with trippy animated effects hiding a few drawings of Olive and Wimpy screaming in horror (Freeze-frame these and enjoy your nightmares). The crowd suddenly shrinks into nothingness, with remnants of their cries for help still audible, and shortly after the trio are seen completely separated, all trapped in a humiliating torture scene. Even though anything can happen in a Fleischer cartoon, I still wonder what has happened inbetween, and what if I were to experience such a chain of events, like if I got beaten by a giant spirit creature, disappeared, and in no time flat found myself in a torture chamber. Quite unnerving, I'd say.
