  1. 90
    Magnificently twisted black comedy.
  2. 90
    A handmade dream, cobbled together from dirt, wood and more imagination than most of us can muster in our most fevered states. Because this Czech master refuses to work in the scrubbed, antiseptic manner of most animators, this fable comes to life as hilarious and creepy.
  3. 88
    Subversively funny, it's a welcome alternative to the big-budget movies flooding into theaters at this time of year.
  4. In the realm of B-movies about messing with nature, it's as enjoyable as "Frankenstein Unbound," and unlike, say, "A.I." it's intentionally creepy. It's also occasionally masterful.
  5. 78
    Should be required viewing for prospective parents still sitting on the spermatazoan fence; after all, you're going to need a good sense of humor, aren't you?
  6. Must be the smartest -- and most disturbing -- movie about parenthood in ages.
  7. Reviewed by: Deborah Young

    An unsettling piece of filmmaking whose grimly vivid images are guaranteed to give impressionable viewers nightmares.
