Seen one Chosen One, seen ’em all? I don’t think so. Have a look at this one!
The Chosen One (US-2008; animation; dir. Chris Lackey)
Here are two trailers:
Lou Hanske’s having a hell of a day … he’s lost his job, totaled his car, and been attacked by a bear. Just when it seems like life can’t get any worse, Lou is informed by the eccentric Church of Frank that he’s “The Chosen One” — the savior from prophecy who must travel to Kansas, speak to God and deliver the world into a new age. Together with his elderly roommate Zeb (Chris Sarandon), his best friend Donna (Danielle Fishel) and Lucifer himself (Tim Curry), Lou (Chad Fifer) must master his budding super-powers to overcome Ninjas, Thugs, Femme Fatales (Traci Lords), Religious Zealots (Lance Henriksen), his obsession with his SciFi star ex-girlfriend (Laura Prepon), Giant Monsters and a Posse of Kung Fu Robots in order to fulfill his destiny!
Hmm, not a bad cast for an independent animated feature film that includes, among other things, zombie robots (what’s a zombie robot?) and a giant monster…
And for good luck, here is Tim Curry discussing the film and his role as Lucifer:
The film is now available on DVD.
