Video Player All Time Top Ten!  No. 10: BLOOD TRAIL

[Twitch is undergoing some behind the scenes tire kicking and bolt-tightening over the next few days, work that may slow down the regular flow of new information a little bit. So, while that's going on we'll be presenting a series of retro-reposts, pulling forward the all time top ten videos since we moved to our current video system.]

My biggest gripe with animated films in Hollywood today is the lack of mature or edgy content for adults. Most of the animated films getting produced are driven by slapstick gags and the characters are drawn in cartoony fashion. Creative studio Nathan Love, in collaboration with Perspective Studios, has completed a three-minute trailer for Blood Trail that utterly go against this convention. Its a horror piece based on writer Matt Cochran's screenplay of the same name and its expected to be developed into a feature film, video game and/or graphic novel. Before you watch this trailer, I must warn you that it contains extreme gore and graphic violence in full CG animated glory. This is definitely not safe for work so keep your kids away. What transpire in the last half had me going "oh shit!".

You'll find the trailer embedded below after the break.

Oh shit indeed. Hopefully this will come to fruition.

Yikes. I wasn't expecting it to be THAT graphic.

I dunno. Personally, when I think "mature content," violence doesn't immediately come to mind as necessary.

I'd love to see film noir done in CG.

Ummm... wow!!

Without climaxing in my pants, I do look forward to this.

And I totally agree with the white-washing that goes on in animated cinema.

I love that this strays from the "trailer mold" and doesn't give the whole thing away.

I wish more movies and films did this.

Except for the ugly/weird human heads design this looks absolutly brilliant. Finaly some gore in a CG moive. Nothing like a good blood shower scene to keep things real ;)

This is freakin' cool!
Let's hope it gets made!

oh shhhhhhiiiiit! that was crazy. Animation looks a little more video game than film but.....still cool.

Stunning. Simply stunning. I hope to shit this gets made.

"It would"... not I'd.

video game or film, it refreshing to see some well put together blood and guts. If the entire film could stay at level, then I'd much rather pay to see this than another Shrek movie. Plus it gives hope to my gore-hound animator self, that I may get to work on such in the future.
(plus it may bode well for the Heavy Metal movie)

"I’d work for a video game cutscene… not for a full length movie. Seriously, did you guys really think that was good?"

Yes, I do. Methinks you overrate teh quality of CG movies. Or underrate the quality of video game cutscenes. Or both. All animators, cg or otherwise have their own styles they wish to use.

It kinda reminds me of "The Burrowers" as it is horror-western.

I believe there is CG noir film, it is called (I think)"Film noir".

i bet that hurt....

tinmannJuly 4, 2009 3:19 PM

I've been waiting for a good feature length mature CGI movie for a while. I love animation but I'm sick and tried of the rated "E" stuff that has dominated the screen.

Loved the sound of tearing fabric that subbed for flesh being ripped apart. Nice sound effects, indeed.
