Isn’t this the coolest poster around? Here is the summary of the Jacob animated teaser (now up at HDFEST)
“A slight metallic noise, as of a barbed object dragged on the pave, can be heard in the peaceful roads of Pumpkinville. In this small provincial town, life is quiet like a stream in a prairie… but horror can come out from every fence cheerfully painted, every shiny manhole, or from the well-groomed hedges of the mansion just at the bottom of the street. He’s hungry, irresponsible and will never stop ‘till he gets what he wants… just to start again.” Watch the video here

But keep that under your hat, alright? Anyway, it all made me realize that I probably don’t really know enough about what kind of actor Heath Ledger really was. So I enrolled myself in the crash course and, lo and behold, pulled out a peach of a pick for the latest installment of the fantastically pleonastically named series, Movie Reviews of Movies For Grown Ups But That Are Written For Kids And That Rhyme Which Is How You Know They’re For Kids Even Though The Movies Are Inappropriate For Kids But That’s What Makes It So Ironic.
