Storyline

Animated tale by former Tim Burton art director Deane Taylor has many of Burton's dark themes. Children playing by the sea shore are lured into a time travel portal where they are taken to an amusement park. There they are having loads of fun until they discover that if they don't escape immediately, they will be forever trapped there as inanimate objects. This sets them in a frenzy to escape, which takes them through a ghost train and a terrifying freak show. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Enjoyable, if not entirely comprehensible
18 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The visuals and sound effects on this film are great! I just wish a little more care had been taken with the story line. Perhaps if I'd seen it another time or two things might have fallen into place - like - what was the origin of the Carnivale in the first place? (I *thought* I was paying relatively close attention but that slipped by me). And just who gave Milly (the "first" girl? ) the little white cloth doll? But it was interesting - a transmutation of Pinochio's "Donkey Island" a little bit of "Somewhere in Time" and no doubt additional influences from Deane Taylor. Perhaps a novelization of the script/story would pull things together a bit more.

Or maybe I just need to see it more than once.
