Bill Watterson’s directorial debut, Dave Made a Maze looks certifiably crazy. And original. That means it gets big points from me!
The new trailer is here, and if you’re into sheer lunacy from a gang who looks like they’re really loving what they’re doing, then you’re going to want to see this movie!
Kirsten Vangsness, Stephanie Allynne, and Nick Thune star.
The film is expected to debut at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival.
Synopsis: ‘Dave Made A Maze’ re-imagines classic 80’s adventure films with a modern comedic edge and a higher body count. Dave, an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave’s girlfriend Annie leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. The handmade fantasy world comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and in-camera optical illusions, re-igniting the tactile sense of wonder from the movies of our childhoods.
