This visual spectacle is directed by Henry Selick, the innovative animator who helmed The Nightmare Before Christmas. Based on the little-known comic book Dark Town, Monkeybone tells the story of a comic book artist (Brendan Fraser) who slips into a coma and finds himself in a twisted world of his own creation. What could have been a feast of black humor is rendered pretty silly by some lowbrow humor and weak ambitions.
