Below is the trailer for Tarik Saleh’s Metropia, an animated film set in the near future, “where oil reserves are nearly depleted and Europe is connected by series of underground tunnels. While navigating these tunnels, Roger hears voices, one in particular. Seeking a way to rid himself of the voice only leads Roger deeper into a bizarre conspiracy of control - mind and body.”
The logline doesn’t make a lot of sense, but then, neither does the trailer. The voice cast includes Vincent Gallo and Juliet Lewis, so you can probably expect the movie to be as freakishly bizarre as they are. But the trailer — Egads. It reminds me of the first time I saw a Tool video, at 2 a.m., on MTV. It gave me the Big Willies (nah! I ain’t mad at ya), and I fell asleep huddled under the couch cushions, waiting for little animated men to come swallow my soul.
Little, animated, creepy people. Let’s get some Calgon up in this motherfucker.
