The Captured Bird certainly sounds right up del Toro's alley. It's a dark, horror-tinged fantasy about a little girl that follows a crack in the pavement to a mysterious building occupied by dark creatures inspired in part by the supernatural phenomenon known as "shadow people." Though this is Vuckovic's first feature as writer-director, she's got some of horror's heavy-hitters publicly rooting for her (George A. Romero, John Landis, and Mick Garris) and the film, which is still in pre-production, already has guaranteed screening slots at Fantastic Fest, Toronto After Dark, and Fantasia Film Fest.
