Finally, something different for fans of animation
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
Great to have another unique animated title like this, since most stuff these days seems to all be the same old formula as far as animated features go. A real breath of fresh air if you're a fan of older roto-scoped or animated fantasy films like Fire & Ice, Lord Of The Rings, or Heavy Metal, this is highly recommended for you. Also included is a making of extra that runs around half an hour if memory serves, but I do wish that it would have included a commentary for the feature presentation.
Wow!!! What a great film the ideas are admittedly better than the film itself...but this film was no small feat to produce...the story arc is very interesting and not completely original but enough so to give it something special...I'd recommend this to anyone who likes films... like to your last death mixed with heavy metal ...with some heavy mysticism and cosmic Lovecraft type elements in it's mythology. Highly recommend!
an epic throwback to 70's animation (Fire & Ice-Heavy Metal etc..)
along with same kinda writing-plot-pacing flaws... but still enjoyable none the less... lots of gore and cool visuals...
I picked it up on a whim... kinda what I expected... not disappointed... with a cool steelbook packaging this ones a keeper! and I'm sure many fans of this 70's style will have fun.
The Spine of Night was so much better than I had been reading about in other reviews. As a huge horror, fantasy and animation fan, this movie brings me joy. My wife also liked. A good endorsement. Expect animation style graphic gore, nudity and an interesting plot.
There are a number of great bonus features, 2 shorts and the backstory for how Spine of Night came to fruition.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hand Drawn Amazing Animation
Owned for 4 months when reviewed.
Amazing hand drawn animation in the vein of Heavy Metal. This was a cool Action packed animated film. Definitely an Adult film.
Okay, so I'll admit I purchased this because of the art on the case and a desire for something animated. I absolutely didn't know what I was getting into, but that's not a bad thing for this film. It's dark, gritty, gruesome and raw. I wish I could find more shows like this as easily as I can find anime that baits you into a similar experience (Berserk is about as close as it gets).
