Pretty trippy site and movie.

Its a collaboration between Neil Gaiman (www.neilgaiman.com; creator of the comic book "Sandman") and fine artist Dave McKean (www.mckean-art.co.uk), with the help of the Jim Henson Creature Shop.

It was originally a direct to video piece, but it will get limited release. Might hit Austin, but I'm not sure it will hit San Antonio.

Pretty weird stuff.

Creepy... It reminds me of the Cat with Hands.

Looks very creative and interesting, but after an hour, I think it would get boring and depressing...

I just saw the trailer and it looks kewlios! It's a Jim Henson Production picture. From what I can tell from the trailer, I couldn't see any puppets :( Mostly CG work...
here's a link to the website

Merged this with old thread from Spring.

As for the movie, I'm waiting until it hits DVD... but it looks wonderfully weird.
