Summary
  • A community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs in the amazing cavernous home they've built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town's villain, Archibald Snatcher, comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, 'into the light,' where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie. Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs' family
  • "If the German Expressionists were skilled at stop-motion animation, they'd have already made it. This is cartoon Caligari."--L.A. Weekly
  • "The meticulously crafted world is stunning to behold, imagined to the minutest detail and photographed with the sort of dramatic lighting and dynamic camera movement rarely seen in stop-motion."--Variety
  • "The Boxtrolls is a kiddie charmer that makes you laugh, cower, and think of Hitler. That's an unusual trifecta, but then again, this is an unusual film."--Village Voice
