If you’re a fan of animation, then you know the names of voice actors Tara Strong, Carlos Alazraqui and Maurice LaMarche. Well, imagine if they had to band together one day to fight a horde of zombies. (This is the best hook for a horror movie I’ve read in months.)
Carlos Alazraqui is as versatile an actor as you can find, though he is not often seen as heard, lending his flexible vocal chords to hundreds of cartoon roles over the years. Children of the 90’s know him as the voice of Australian Wallaby, Rocko, but when they grew into comedy loving teens he stepped out from behind the mic to join castaways from sketch group The State on an improvised police comedy called Reno 911! in live action.
Ambitious, disturbing, sincere and thought provoking are only a few of the words to describe Strange Nature, an unexpected gem of a film from writer-director, James Ojala. The assigned genre of “ecological thriller” is an apt description for this unique movie experience that stands apart from any other independent production you’ll see this year.
