“Beautiful and hypnotic, horrifying and nightmare-inducing”
– Elements of Madness
“An appropriately devastating experience.”
It’s “Bambi meets Apocalypse Now” in this provocative and darkly beautiful horror comedy from acclaimed filmmaker and illustrator Alberto Vázquez (Birdboy: The Forgotten Children), who uses its outrageous candy-colored premise to explore religious zealotry, the tortured legacies of military fascism, and the depths of the soul.
For ages, teddy bears have been locked in an ancestral war against their sworn enemy, the unicorns, with the promise that victory will usher in a new era. Aggressive, sadistic teddy bear Bluey and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different. As the rigors and humiliation of bootcamp turn to the psychedelic horrors of a combat tour in the Magic Forest, their increasingly strained relationship will come to determine the fate of the entire war. NOT FOR KIDS.
