My Thoughts: A couple of friends and I came across this movie on Netflix last night and decided to give it a go. Big mistake. This is the weirdest and most confusing movie that I have seen in a long time. It was difficult to understand the plot at the beginning because it quickly switched from a realistic world to a fantastic world without any true transition. It also is filled with the creepiest puppets I have even seen in my life, and I hate puppets. To give it some credit, the idea itself wasn't necessarily a bad one, but it could have been developed a lot better.
Verdict: Don't subject yourself to the horror of terrifying puppets!
