A Town Called Panic

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? A horse, a cowboy, and a Native American (as the title suggests), run from a bear, launch a few cows into space and run around like idiots. If you aren’t already privy to the insane splendor of A Town Called Panic, this short film is a great introduction. But what can you expect? Colorful stop-motion made with children’s toys, surreal randomness, and head-slapping humor. Drink an energy drink and try to keep up, please. What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time. Check out A Town Called Panic: Cake for yourself:

July 20th in DVD

Join us each week as Rob Hunter takes a look at new DVD releases and gives his highly unqualified opinion as to which titles are worth BUYing, which are better off as RENTals, and which should be AVOIDed at all costs. And remember, these listings and category placements are meant as informational conversation starters only. But you can still tell Hunter how wrong he is in the comment section below. Several of this week’s new titles seem to be coming in pairs including… Bong Joon-ho’s first film as well as his latest, a pair of Roger Corman’s Cult Classics, the BBC’s Being Human and Look Around You, A Couple of Dicks from Kevin Smith, and more. See all of this week’s relevant DVD releases after the jump…



While 2009 may have been a weak year for movies overall, animated films shined in a way they haven’t in a very long time.



If Fantastic Fest is going to be credited for starting this year’s great cinema meme (Chaos Reigns), then it must also take credit for launching A Town Called Panic into the spotlight. This wild little film did win the Audience Awards, after all.



Yesterday, Variety published the list of films that have made the cut of 20 for the race to get the Best Animated Feature Oscar. Allow me to break this down for you…



Luckily we had a list of the winners sent to us because we didn’t remember all the names. Or where our pants went.



One of Fantastic Fest’s best surprises has US distribution and a release date.



Indian and Cowboy are in trouble – they’ve forgotten to get a gift for their roommate Horse on his birthday, but when they order bricks online to build a barbecue, they accidentally end up with 50 million of them delivered to their house. Meanwhile, Horse is trying to win the favor of the beautiful music teacher Ms. Longree, and Farmer Steven just wants to eat his toast and fix his tractor.



We’ve been training all our lives for this, and it’s finally here. Fantastic Fest 2009 promises to remove our eyeballs, pour blood, sex and ninja moves all over them and then shove them right back in our face. These are the 20 films that have us most excited about that upcoming amateur surgical procedure.



The Toronto Film Festival paints midnights red with zombies, flesh-eating cheerleaders, badass bitches and Tony Jaa.
