Stage Fright
28 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this movie stands out from the rest of the Nick Park stable because it is basically not funny and not meant to be - it is slightly disturbing and thought-provoking, whereas we are used to funny little Gromit and bumbling wallace chasing cheese. It shows an excellent command of historical context - the transition from vaudeville / music hall to movies. But man, is it strange. don't show it your little nephews unless you really want them up all night! Incidentally I think the little chap is called 'Tiny', not Tinny as in earlier review. The movie puts me in mind of that one about the murderous ventriloquist dummy, the title of which completely evades me.
