Enter the fantastically frenzied, gloriously gory and dazzlingly dark animated world of The Spine of Night, which audiences can now feast their eyes on as the psychedelic Shudder Exclusive arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on 24 October 2022, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
This dark and delirious fantasy horror epic from Philip Gelatt – the brains behind Love, Death & Robots – and renowned short-film artist Morgan Galen King features a stellar cast. With acting favourites including Richard E Grant (Gosford Park, Withnail & I, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Lucy Lawless (Spartacus, Xena: Warrior Princess), Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, Eternals, 22 Jump Street) and Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike, Justice League), this dazzlingly unique adventure is brought to life by these familiar voices.
The story begins with an ambitious young man who steals forbidden knowledge from a sacred planet. As he succumbs to its darker temptations, he unknowingly unleashes centuries of suffering onto mankind…
Ancient, dark magic has fallen into sinister hands, and a group of heroes from different eras and cultures must unite to defeat it at all costs… Among those who stand against him are a daring tomb-robber, star-crossed lovers, a maniacal necromancer, winged assassins, and an undying guardian. Can they stop him and save the universe before it’s too late?
With oodles of gore, bucket loads of blood, old-school anime, psychedelic hand-painted backdrops, out-of-this-world neon visuals, and elements of Steampunk fantasy, this action-packed throwback is a striking visual frenzy just waiting to be discovered.
For a unique and unforgettable thrill ride, venture into The Spine of Night.
