Must Watch: Officially Wacky Trailer for A Town Called Panic
It is my absolute pleasure to present the official trailer for A Town Called Panic today on Thanksgiving. This wonderfully wacky stop-motion animated movie comes from Belgium, where these same characters are part of a TV show. A Town Called Panic is about the misadventures of Cowboy, Indian and Horse. It's really hard to describe this, the concept, the story, anything. But, t's one of the best stop animated movies I've seen in a while (in addition to Fantastic Mr. Fox) and it's pure fun from start to finish. It's insanely trippy, as you'll see, but thoroughly entertaining as well. If there's only one new trailer you watch today, let this be it!

Even animated plastic toys like Cowboy, Indian and Horse have problems, too. Cowboy and Indian's plan to surprise Horse with a homemade birthday gift backfires when they destroy his entire house instead.
A Town Called Panic, aka Panique au Village in Belgian, is co-directed and co-written by Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar, also of the Pic Pic André shoow. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and was eventually picked up by Zeitgeist Films for release in the US. A Town Called Panic will hit very limited theaters starting on December 16th and is being considered for Best Animated Feature this year.
