  • 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 (Stephane 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 an icy tundra, and discovering a strange aquatic world inhabited by oddball beings with pointed heads. Benoit Poelvoorde (MAN BITES DOG) provides one of the voices.

    "A TOWN CALLED PANIC is an adventure story as fast-paced and exciting as any currently in theaters....Funny and original..."
    New York Times

    "The most frequent line of dialogue in this enchanting world is 'Oh, no!' One strange thing happens after another."
    Chicago Sun-Times
