This film looks eerily amazing. It looks like it perfectly balances the interesting with creepy. And it should. It has a number of the most creative and imaginative minds in film behind it. It was written and directed by Shane Acker, whose two previous animated shorts The Hangnail and The Astounding Talents of Mr. Grenade got him three Oscar nods and attention from Wanted Director Timur Bekmambetov and Sweeney Todd Director Tim Burton, who both produced the film and backed the young Director.

Not bad, for a first feature film. Check out the latest trailer below via FirstShowing
