We had no idea the Czech film for children Toys in the Attic was this scary. A bunch of toys come to life when the humans aren't looking (naturally) and the gang rallies together when one of their own is kidnapped. We have the exclusive clip of their sweet little friend getting captured, by what we're assuming is a hissing dirty rag? Watch, and be scarred for life.

Featuring the voices of Forest Whitaker, Joan Cusack & Carey Elwes, this movie promises to bring the fear back into the lives of children everywhere.

Set in a magical world of toys and knick-knacks stored in the attic of a home in Prague. The setting for the film was inspired by the cultural and political contrast of the Cold War era and its impact on director Jiri Barta and the Czech Republic. The world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the Land of Evil in the East. The despotic Head of State rules over the Land of Evil with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely Buttercup (Vivian Schilling) is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head (Jiri Labus, with voice by Douglas Urbanski), it is up to her friends - a teddy bear (Forest Whitaker), a mechanical mouse (Joan Cusack) and marionette puppet (Cary Elwes) to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue.


Toys in the Attic hits theaters on September, 7 2012.
