“Fast-paced and exciting. Funny and original. An absurdist, chaotic version of the pastoral European countryside – la France profonde meets Buster Keaton. Simultaneously giddy and satirical… reminiscent of South Park and the Wallace and Gromit movies, but less pointed, more poetic.”
– Mike Hale, The New York Times

Hilarious and delightfully wacky, the stop-motion extravaganza A Town Called Panic has endless charms and raucous laughs for children and adults alike. Based on the Belgian cult TV series (released by Wallace & Gromit’s Aardman Studios), Panic stars three plastic toys named Cowboy, Indian and Horse who share a rambling house in a rural town that never fails to attract the craziest events.

Cowboy and Indian’s plan to surprise their pal Horse with a homemade barbeque pit goes awry when the 50 million bricks they accidentally ordered online show up on their doorstep. This sets off a raucous chain of events as the trio travels to the center of the earth, treks across frozen tundra (complete with a giant snowball-throwing robot penguin) and discovers a parallel underwater universe of treacherous, pointy-headed creatures. And with panic a permanent feature of life in this papier-mâché burg, will Horse and his equine girlfriend—the flame-tressed music teacher Madame Longray (Jeanne Balibar)—ever find a quiet moment alone? A Town Called Panic is zany, brainy and altogether insane-y!
