A blog for illustrators by illustrators in singapore
I saw the trailer and somehow, it's lost it's creepiness. When i first read the book, it gave me that boogey man scare factor ala Clive Barker's Thief of Always - that scared the inner kid in me. This animation makes it seem more friendly to kids though, not scary. Of course, I suppose with Dave Mckean illustrations (in the book), anything would be scary hehe. Still looking forward to it though :)
I have both the book and the graphic novel adaptation. Have to say I like the original best.
I agree, I read the novel way back and I feel that the treatment they give it is to make it more palatable for mainstream audience. I have to say the novel feels more creepy especially when paired with Dave McKean's illustrations!
