    This has just become one of my most anticipated movies coming up:

    There's a 15-minute short feat. the same character on Youtube, but I can't link it due to language.

    If you're a fan of 1980s action cinema, you should definitely watch it!!

    The visual style is extremely influenced by John McTiernan's works.

    I saw the 15 min short :funny: kind of like an R rated Wallace and Grommet type story.

    There are times were it felt like it was people in costumes instead of stop motion.

    Yeah, it is.
    And it's a great testament to 1980s action cinema and especially John McTiernan's visual style, with the lens flares, etc. And in the end they also managed to slip a nice nod to John Carpenter and especially 'The Thing' in there. Can't wait to see the feature film.
    The interesting thing is that he actually studied the way those movies were directed, and made it as if it were an actual 1980s action movie.
    'Night of the Trampires' is said to be mainly inspired by 'Die Hard,' 'Evil Dead 2,' 'Fright Night,' 'The Last Boy Scout' and Ray Harryhausen flicks. Sounds good to me!

    Yeah, the stop motion animation is incredible. And for both the short AND the feature film they made a strict decision not to use ANY CGI.

    There's one thing I frankly disagree with in this review even without having seen the movie. "VHS-ready aesthetic"? Judging from the trailer the cinematography looks slick as hell!
