Military brat Lauren spent her childhood nights in a nightmarish state, until a mythical dream-eating cryptid known as a Baku released her from nocturnal torment. Lauren decides to dedicate her life to rescuing and sheltering cryptids from those who seek to exploit them, so she becomes a cryptozookeeper. But soon, Lauren begins to wonder if displaying these rare beasts in the confines of a zoo is better than enabling these mythical creatures to remain hidden and unknown. From the mind of filmmaker Dash Shaw (My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea), and featuring the voice talents of Lake Bell, Zoe Kazan, Michael Cera, and Louisa Krause, Cryptozoo is a richly-drawn, hallucinatory feature animation for adults, taking audiences on a sublime journey toward multispecies justice.
