Shane Acker's animated movie 9 already impressed us with its blend of action and gothy postapocalyptic-ragdoll imagery. But a new clip underscores how scary the film, produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmabetov, will be.

Watch it in high-definition here.

That weird cyborg bug with the decoy/lure creeps me the hell out, and I don't rate 7's chances very highly in its grasp. In case you missed our earlier coverage of this film, 9 takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humans are gone, but we've left behind nine mechanical ragdolls, named 1 through 9. And they're struggling to survive against a host of killer robots. The newest ragdoll is named 9 (Elijah Wood), and he asks a bunch of questions the other dolls have long since stopped asking, about their world and the way it's organized.


9 opens on Sept. 9 (or 9/9/09). And by the way, we reported a while back that another movie, called Nine, was also slated to come out on that date. The other film seems to have blinked (nine times, even) and now will come out
