So, here’s a totally random, head-exploding awesome flick that has managed to stay off our radar. ‘We R Animals‘. A Swedish, muppet style (yes, I said muppet) film about a Cat pimp, Cat ninja, Cat junkie, and also a vampire bat. As well as a cute, fluffy bunny who is forced into prostitution. What the deuce? What is this film and why are we only just hearing about it now. Christ, I’ve had dreams and none of them were near as awesome as this flick sounds.
‘We R Animals’ is currently in pre-production, and will start shooting sometime in 2011. It was inspired by Peter Jackson’s Meet The Feebles. The film is also the directorial debut of Thobias Hoffmen.
Here’s the official Synopsis:
Snow White the rabbit is stuck in a sadistic man’s pet store, she craves for love but nobody wants to take her home. But one day the animals wreck havoc and they all escape, including Snow White. She gets lost with her newfound freedom and almost dies, until the nice old lady Alice saves her. Snow White would’ve had a bright future if not for Alice’s jealous and vindictive dogs, who call on their friend Flash, a shady and devious pimp cat. Together they plan to transform Alice’s apartment into a brothel for animals, and force Snow White and even the human Alice into prostitution.
‘We R Animals‘ is a comic adventure, filled with drug using cats, horny dogs, cat-ninja assassins, vampire bats, cruelty and magic. In essence We R Animals is a love story told with warmth, where sometimes the laughter sits in the throat and forces us to question the morals and views of both animals and man.
My fetish for puppets being used in adult situations not withstanding, this flicks obvious outlandish-ness and controversy certainly appeals to my nerd sensibilities. I dunno about you, but this will be on my list most anticipated movies to see.
