Our own Josh said in his review, "...it's the absurd violence that really puts this one over the top for genre film fans. Imagine the old Dragon's Lair arcade game (laserdisc arcade games? What a concept!) packed with Metalocalypse levels of violence and gore, and you'll have some idea of what you're in for. It's a glorious bloody mess of hacked-off limbs and decapitations by which it's hard not to be impressed".
The Spine of Night an all-star cast of Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”), Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Betty Gabriel (Get Out) and Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”). The film was co-written and co-directed by Philip Gelatt and Morgan Galen King.
We are going technical this time. HD video typically runs at 24 or 30 frames per second. Gelatt and King chose to animate The Spine of Night with the old-fashioned hand-drawn rotoscope animation method. How many frames per second is that usually?
When you have the answer email us here and you will be entered into the random draw at the end of the week, on Friday, February 4th at noon, PST. Entries are limited to one per household and the giveaway is open to residents of the U.S.
