Delve Deeper

Monday, July 9, 2012 reviews "The Captured Bird"

"A gorgeous, haunting exploration of youthful imagination, THE CAPTURED BIRD transports viewers back in time to their own early excavations of the dark. The eleven-minute short is the freshman outing from genre publishing icon Jovanka Vuckovic, who reportedly turned to her horror heroes for guidance at the project’s outset. In the end, just as she proved in ZOMBIES! AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE UNDEAD and with how she evolved Canada’s Rue Morgue magazine from fan rag to one of the most distinct voices in genre periodicals, THE CAPTURED BIRD is clearly the product of Vuckocic’s own vision. The results are stunning.
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, the Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Anderson, THE CAPTURED BIRD is at once a fairy tale and nightmare, telling the story of a curious little girl (Skyler Wexler) lured from the security of her jump rope and chalk world into the mysterious confines of a sprawling castle. Once inside the crumbling abode, it becomes clear the building, and its horrifying inhabitants, have been expecting her."
