A Town Called Panic - Trailer + New Images
I just want to say straight up that this film looks absolutely hilarious. It's been described already as like 'Toy Story on Abinsinte' which is a fair approximation and highlights the unique French flavour of it all. Just have a watch of the trailer and a read of the synopsis and you'll see exactly what we mean. Genius. You can also follow one of the film's protagonists on twitter which we definitely recommend, especially seeing as it's good old #ff today. Animated plastic toys like Cowboy, Indian and Horse have problems too. Cowboy and Indian's plan to surprise Horse with a homemade birthday gift backfires when they destroy his house instead. Surreal adventures ensue as the trio travel to the centre of the earth, trek across frozen tundra and discover a parallel underwater universe where pointy headed (and dishonest!) creatures live. Each speedy character is voiced - and animated - as if their very air contains both amphetamines and laughing gas. With panic a permanent feature of life in this papier mache town, will Horse and his girlfriend ever be alone?
