Not too keen on the mismatched song used in the preview. but it does look very creative.

Not sure why you feel it is mismatched, but I think it looks like a fun animated feature.  I probably wont do the theatre thing, but will def check it out down the road in bluray or on demand.

Admittedly, I watched this without the sound, but I always wondered what it would look like if Pixar hired Tim Burton to direct a movie...  now I know.  :)

Looks intriguing.  I'm with fatpantz.  I'll Redbox it.

on the fence. almost too much going on in every scene... could it be possible that there's too much detail?

Not for me. Maybe once when it's on tv if I happen on it at the right time

Oh wow! I just realized this looks like the game Grim Fandango. Blend in some Burton and Pixar and voila! Millean, you are so right.
