The Spine of Night, Shudder’s upcoming animated fantasy, is slated to be released for streaming exclusively on the platform on Thursday, March 24, 2022.
According to the movie’s official synopsis, the animated movie is an “epic fantasy tale”, telling the story about “the history of a land that never was.” The story begins when an ambitious young man steals prohibited knowledge from a sacred plant. He deepens himself into darker temptations and thereby brings “ages of suffering onto mankind.” His power continues to grow over the years, and people of different ilk and culture have to stop him. The synopsis describes those standing against him as including “a daring tomb-robber, star-crossed lovers, a maniacal necromancer, winged assassins and an undying guardian.”
