Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)

Halloween Reviews 2020

Directors:  Steve Box, Nick Park

Writers: Steve Box & Nick Park & Mark Burton and Bob Baker, based on characters created by Nick Park

Creator Nick Park and co-director Steve Box prove that Wallace and Gromit, the stars of several award-winning short features, are worthy of moving to the feature-length format. 

First of all, the meticulous clay animation is a joy to watch. 

The story, in which a small English town is terrorized by the monster of the title while preparing for a big vegetable competition, is a very funny spoof of horror films. 

Park's W&G films feature secondary animal characters that are cute without being cloying, such as sheep or evil penguins. 

This time, there are scores of bunnies. 

I'm not sure why their noses look like pig snouts, but it works.

This enjoyable film is appropriate for kids, but also has some good jokes for adults that the children won't catch.
