Secret Adventures of Tom Thumb

Synopsis

A dark, twisted, yet enchanting version of the classic fairy tale. Set in a world of dark and shadowy tenements, shining high-tech labs and septic landscapes of garbage and ruins, The Secret Adventures Of Tom Thumb makes a touching hero of the tiny child mysteriously born to a woman and a man in experiments in a lab full if mutant creatures. He narrowly escapes into a world where he finds companionship with people his own size and starts to fights back against the 'giants' alongside Jack the Giant Killer.Nothing is likely to prepare you for your entry into the astonishing, timeless world created by the award-winning bolexbrothers' director Dave Borthwick, where the strange humans are animated, latex figures breathe as if alive and objects and odd creatures crinkle and crunch in the corner. It's a world of genuine horror and moving movements that has the power to unsettle and enchant in equal measure - a potent reminder that fairy tales were never meant to be nursery soothers.

Looks interesting. When I came here I thought this was about the anime TOM of T.H.U.M.B. series, owell. I'd really like to find the complete anime series from the 60's. They used to show it along with the anime KING KONG series. The TOM of T.H.U.M.B. anime was hillarious. Kinda like imagine James Bond as the midget that you see in this newer vid. He used to have a Asian partner "Swingin Jack" that was kinda parody of Bruce Lee as Kato. Tom was a member of T.H.U.M.B. (the Tiny Human Underground Military Bureau). So was this where they got their ideas from for this new Secret Adventures of Tom Thumb? You oughta try to release the old 60's anime series along with this. I know I'd buy the complete series along with that anime KING KONG show if anyone offered that. I know alot of older anime fans that also used to watch these 2 shows thought they kinda borrowed some ideas from GIGANTOR (TETSUJIN 28) for Kong. I know it was more for kids than anime you sell these days, but it was a really good family friendly anime with a lot of the quality we saw in Speed Racer, Astroboy, AMAZING 3 etc.
