“Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole,” a film depicting a sinister take on an iconic cartoon classic that encompasses the pure horror genre, has officially dropped its exceptionally creepy teaser trailer that will bring chills up viewer’s spines. Filmmaker and producer Lilton Stewart III and Lucinda Bruce are working with talent to finalize the roster for the film and will begin filming this spring.
“The teaser trailer will give people a taste of the gruesome and nightmarish journey that takes the characters from an exciting adventure of finding themselves, to one they hope to make it out of alive,” Stewart said, Creator of the film. “Creating a new type of horror film that has never been done before has always been a dream of mine. I think the audience will be surprised at the significant differences between ‘Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole’ and other films in the spin-off horror space.”
The cryptic teaser sets a very particular tone to the unsettling and tense vibe of the movie, sharing a sneak peek of the gory, menacing sight of Oswald’s rabbit and includes nostalgic cartoon music. The film falls into both the horror and adventure genres.
The film follows the main character, Art, and friends embarking on what starts as an innocent journey to track down his family lineage, quickly turns into a bloodcurdling nightmare when they find his Great-Grandpa Oswald’s abandoned home. The group is transported to a place lost in time, shrouded by dark Hollywood devilry.
When Art’s Great-Grandpa’s come-to-life cartoon Rabbit, a dark entity, decides their lives belong to it, the group is petrified. Art and his friends must work together to escape the haunting prison by the skin of their teeth, before the Rabbit gets to them first.
The movie has a 142-page script and will be produced in partnership with Mana Animation Studio for animation, Tandem Post House for post-production and VFX Supervisor, Bob Homami, who is known for “The Tomorrow War,” “Oblivion” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
“Releasing the teaser trailer leaves me eager to showcase more shocking sneak peeks once the film is underway and we have confirmed talent,” Bruce said, Producer and Owner of production company Lady of the Light Productions.
The production team is currently seeking investors to help reach their funding goals that will make their vision of this unique horror film come to life and reach a large audience.
