Watch the Sandman Fan Film That Earned Neil Gaiman's Stamp of Approval

Even with the success of American Gods, we still may never get a Sandman movie, or even a TV series. But Neil Gaiman diehards need not despair completely, because there’s a new fan film that pays impressively exacting tribute to one of Sandman’s most brutal installments.

It’s “24 Hours,” originally published in 1989, and faithfully translated into live-action (with a few brief animation sequences) by Toronto-based filmmakers Evan Henderson and Nick Brown. It’s called Sandman: 24 Hour Diner, and if its 30-minute runtime gives you pause, know that Gaiman himself told the creators, and the world via Twitter, that he thought it was a job very well done.

(Note: fans of the comic will already have assumed as much, but this is most definitely NSFW.)

Let’s face the reality here.

Sandman is too complex to be adapted proberly into a movie. This needs a high quality multiple season TV series by a team that understands the material. I am talking about aproximately 25 to 50+ hours of screentime.

Even a overlength movie, or multiple movies would barely scratch the surface. This is GoT material to be done in GoT quality.
