A while back Peter Jackson’s “the Frighteners” was released on Netflix. That’s right! The cool guy that brought us the Lord of the Rings movies. He did stuff before that as hard as it is to believe. (Check out two little gems called “Bad Taste” and “Dead Alive”. Surgeon general warning: Do not eat before watching and avoid at all costs if you have a faint heart)
After first geekasming about it and then forcing my wife to watch it and then basking in the sweet sweet afterglow that is good movie, I started thinking about how cool it would be to have “the Frighteners” continue in cartoon form.
They used make cartoon version of movies all the time back when I was a little kid. Off the top of my head there was “the Real Ghostbusters“, “Beetlejuice”, “Back to the Future”. We got to see the continuing adventures of our favorite characters. Sometimes it got a little jumpthesharkey (I’m looking at you Back to the Future cartoon ) but it was still fun to see.
So that’s the rabbit I chased down the hole and I came out the other end with this.
I hope you enjoy it!
