We’ve got a new teaser for write – directors Philip Gelatt and Michael Galen King‘s ultra-violent epic animated fantasy film The Spine of the Night featuring Richard E. Grant and Lucy Lawless.
Inspired by the cult classic works of animators Ralph Bakshi and Frank Franzetta, the film is set in a fantasy land ripe with magic and intrigue where a dark force is unleashed sending mankind into an age of ruin. It falls on heroes from different eras and cultures to fight back.
“This epic begins many years ago when an ambitious young man steals forbidden knowledge from a sacred plant and, as he falls to its darker temptations, unleashes ages of suffering onto mankind. As his power grows over the years, there are many who stand against him. Among them are a daring tomb-robber, star-crossed lovers, a maniacal necromancer, winged assassins, and an undying guardian.”
Richard E. Grant (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Lucy Lawless (“Ash vs Evil Dead”, “Xena: Warrior Princess”), Patton Oswalt (“Parks and Recreation”), Betty Gabriel (Get Out), and Joe Manganiello (Justice League, Spider-Man), also star along with Abby Savage (“Orange is the New Black”), and Larry Fessenden (The Dead Don’t Die) and Rob McClure.
The Spine of the Night makes its world premiere at SXSW on Thursday, March 18, 2021.
