With humble beginnings as a comic book and short film by Arthur de Pins, this new trailer for the French animated feature Zombillenium is a refreshing yet familiar premise with great promise.
Basically a Halloween-themed amusement park run by vampires, zombies, devils and werewolves who were once living workers in a mine below the grounds and now run operations and attempt to keep Zombillenium's secret from the world, it has a definite A Nightmare Before Christmas meets Monsters Inc. and Hotel Transylvania vibe that makes for amusing family-oriented fare.
Here's the official synopsis:
Nobody knows, but the Zombillenium theme park happens to be full of real monsters! When a human, Hector, threatens to disclose the true identity of the park's employees, the vampire park manager has no other choice but to hire him. Hector must escape from his zombie and werewolf co-workers to see his daughter or risk ending up as the park's prize attraction.
Directed by Arthur de Pins and Alexis Ducord, Zombillenium debuted at Cannes today and is slated for an October 18 release in France.
