Editors Note
Note This unusual feature (a French-Belgian-Luxembourgian co-production) stylistically recalls the work of Art Clokey (GUMBY, DAVEY AND GOLIATH), with its lead cast consisting entirely of stop motion-animated children's toys. The premise concerns two such toys -- Cowboy (Stéphane Aubier) and Indian (Bruce Ellison) -- who plan to buy a birthday gift for their friend Horse (the voice of Vincent Patar) but accidentally destroy his house. A series of wacky, often hallucinatory adventures ensues that finds the trio journeying to the center of the earth, wandering across icy tundra and discovering a strange aquatic world inhabited by oddball beings with pointed heads. Benoît Poelvoorde (MAN BITES DOG) provides one of the voices.
Los Angeles Times "[T]his Belgian animated epic is completely over-the-top zany." 11/06/2009
Box Office 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] goofy, hilarious stop-motion fable....The real stars are the power of imagination and a keen, playful wit." 12/01/2009
New York Times "A TOWN CALLED PANIC is an adventure story as fast-paced and exciting as any currently in theaters....Funny and original..." 12/16/2009
Chicago Sun-Times "The most frequent line of dialogue in this enchanting world is 'Oh, no!' One strange thing happens after another." 01/13/2010
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Studded with surreal and unexpectedly tender touches, this is plastic and fantastic." 10/01/2010
Sight and Sound "The effect is undoubtedly charming....Genial and amusing..." 11/01/2010
