Created by Kevin McTurk and produced by Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams Films, THE NARRATIVE OF VICTOR KARLOCH is a sort of haunted Jules Verne yarn about "an alchemist, ghost hunter and scholar" who investigates matters of the supernatural. It began life as a radio drama tailored specifically to blind children (with surround sound and tactile special effects), and, over the last two years, has metamorphosed into a fanciful, lovingly crafted puppet film. The movie features the voices of Christopher Lloyd and Elijah Wood, and puppets were created in their likeness.
I've been privileged to catch glimpses of McTurk's work over the last year or so as the film has come together. Now that he has an official trailer to share with the rest of the world, I'm thrilled to present it on AICN.
I love the look of the storm-swept ocean and the ghostly world lurking at the bottom of the ocean. For more on the production, visit McTurk's website TheSpiritCabinet.com. Rest assured that we'll keep you updated on this very cool project as it gets closer to release.
