Peter and Michael Spierig, the directors of Daybreakers and
Unwatchable Undead, have been hired for a sequel to 1982’s most child-brain-scarring puppet film The Dark Crystal. A press release from The Henson Company announced that the film will stay true to its puppetry roots and resist the overuse of CGI. But don’t worry. It will be presented in price-gouging 3D. Which scares the crap out of me.
I saw this film over 25 years ago and I still can’t socialize properly or sleep through the night. I’m still haunted by nightmares where monsters pull their eyeballs out and attack elves that look like Julian Lennon. Now that Power of the Dark Crystal is on its way, I’ll more than likely go full-on shed-living recluse. Guess I’d better start getting use to the taste of squirrel and other rodents. **dials Zen Chinese Kitchen** (Henson)
