The Spine of Night’s Trailer

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

One of my oldest friends sent me a trailer for a throwback animated film. The Spine of Night looks like a classic animated film from the 80/90s. The animation was completed using rotoscope. Fire and Ice, Heavy Metal, Vampire Hunter D are other classic films. These were the anime that shaped my own movie preferences. Truly gorgeous and something that I think all of us need to watch. Gory, medieval set-pieces full of action. I won't spoil it, but if you like classic fantasy animation, then look no further.

This one is already everything you want and yet it gets better when you get a look at the voice cast. Lucy Lawless lending her vocal talents. In addition, we have Richard E. Grant, Patton Oswalt, Betty Gabriel, and Joe Manganiello. Directed and written by Philip GelattMorgan and Galen King.

The movie synopsis is as follows: To put an end to the eternal vigil of the all-powerful guardian of the last light of the gods, an unfathomable source of inexhaustible cosmic knowledge and power, Tzod, the fierce high priestess of the great jungle swamp called Bastal, braves the elements ascending an unforgiving, snow-covered mountaintop. As her long and arduous journey finally comes to an end, Tzod encounters the ancient sentinel of the bloom and its mystical blue flame and recounts the tale of how a single spore has changed the world below: a blood-soaked, centuries-old story of corruption, greed, tyranny, and destruction against the backdrop of the never-ending quest for control, influence, and illumination. But, humankind's atrocities echo through eternity, and heroes are always those who are expendable. Can a single petal of the small blue flower restore balance to the universe?
