The Spine of Night (2021) - V: Grant, Lawless, Oswalt, Gabriel, Manganiello



THE SPINE OF NIGHT In Theaters, On Demand and Digital HD October 29th

Starring Richard E. Grant, Lucy Lawless, Patton Oswalt, Betty Gabriel and Joe Manganiello
Written and Directed by Philip Gelatt and Morgan Galen King

This epic fantasy tale, about the history of a land that never was, begins when an ambitious young man steals forbidden knowledge from a sacred plant. He falls to its darker temptations and in so doing, unleashes ages of suffering onto mankind. As his power grows over the years, it falls to people of different ilk and culture to attempt to stop him. Among those who stand against him are a daring tomb-robber, star-crossed lovers, a maniacal necromancer, winged assassins, and an undying guardian.

Just watched this and thought it was pretty good. Very reminiscent of Ralph Bakshi’s rotoscoped animation (but of course much of it is just mostly computer animated frames with a rotoscoped look). The story and voice acting is what puts this one over the top for me. Not for the squeamish.
