Editor's 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.

Expert Review A Town Called Panic - DVD Review DVD Reviews
Published on: 7/20/2010 5:00 AM
Imagine, if you will, that Robot Chicken and Wallace & Gromit had a child. Then imagine you could watch that child in fast motion, and that child never stopped screaming. In French. If you can picture that, then I've just saved you ninety minutes of going to see A Town Called Panic. Though the stop-motion animated movie starts off pleasantly enough, with a mailman riding through pastoral, animated hills, as soon as he reaches the town of Panic, things get amped up to the full review
