London's Guardian has aptly described this hour-long animated puppet nightmare by Dave Borthwick (1993) as taking place in a "filmic netherworld where Eraserhead and Pinocchio meet." Part of what makes it so creepy is the use of real people as well as puppets, part is the overall surrealist imagination. I didn't much care for the story, which mixes Star Wars medievalism with Brazil futurism, but the images are eerie enough to stock a solid month of bad dreams. The music is by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones.
