While its a bit much to call it a forgotten gem, its more like a forgotten 17th century gold coin.

Still a pretty awesome find.

How to describe it. Its a solid horror story for kids. You may as adults simply might not be scared, but its got a solid story (And an ending I REALY like).

Its a bit too safe for adults but it will terrify but not too much for kids.

Thats not to say its not better then 90% of all horror films. Gorn or otherwise. Just a bit too little for adults.

The animation balances on the line of uncanny valley, never entering that valley but dam close. Generally it still holds up today.

For a score? 7.5/10. Slightly off from being a gem but as it is its great.

Watch it with your kids.

Is this the CGI film with Steve Buscemi?

Assuming it's the film that Dr. Epic is referring to, I'll soundly agree that it is a pretty darn good movie. My oldest enjoyed watching it, as did me and my wife. I'd probably score it a little bit higher, something like 8.25/10. Plot was good, didn't have any outstanding holes in it, and the animation was well done.
