Alice: the creepy taxidermic rendition

Just a youtube teaser of Czech filmmaker Jan Svankmajer's surrealist take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  The opening sequence shows a stuffed white rabbit pulling itself out of a diorama - it bites out the nails and spills its sawdust stuffing.  The scene is constructed with stop motion animation with taxidermy.  Very dark.  Very strange.  And the film itself gets even darker from here.
