AFM ’11: Bizarre ‘The Melancholy Fantastic’ Acquired by Lightning

In A.D. Calvo’s The Melancholy Fantastic, “against the objections of a life-size doll, a delusional young girl falls for an alluring Goth in this unconventional psychological thriller.” Lightning Media has acquired the film for U.S.

Starring Amy Crowdis, Robin Lord Taylor, Josh Caras, Geneva Carr, David Pirrie, and Shirley Knight, the indie is said to be an alternative Christmas story with a shockingly happy ending.

The trailer now available inside is visually remarkable, and carries a similar tone to Lucky McKee’s May (maybe even a little bit of Pin). It’s good stuff.
