It is a rare thing to see a hyper-niche sci-fi-fantasy-adult-animated film being made these days but Philip Gelatt and Morgan Galen King have done it with The Spine of Night. An homage to the glory days of adult animation in the 70’s, Night, 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.
