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.Pining for the old school animated aesthetics of the original Lord of The Rings cartoon or the barbaric rawness of Fire and Ice?
Then submerse yourself in echoes of Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta in this trailer for Philip Gelatt and Morgan Galen King's The Spine of Night, which has its world premiere next week during the SXSW 2021 film festival's Midnighters Section.
The voice talent attached to this project includes such luminaries as Richard E. Grant, Xena's Lucy Lawless, Patton Oswalt, Betty Gabriel, Larry Fessenden, and celebrity Dungeons & Dragons player Joe Manganiello.
