Odd One Out

Friday, January 31st, 2014


Science fiction / Fantasy / Animation


Odd One Out is a sci-fi fantasy story told almost without dialogue that takes place in a surreal film-noir universe inhabited by faceless living mannequins. A paranoid military cabal looking for the ultimate war deterrent create a mechanized colossus in an underground laboratory, but a mysterious organization of black-suited anarchists brainwash a hapless soldier into triggering the monster’s escape. This act of sabotage is only one part of a sinister plot that plunges the city into all-out civil war and leads to an apocalyptic final confrontation. Six years in the making, Odd One Out was filmed entirely with miniatures and practical effects, and features just four actors playing over seventy characters.
