Movie Reviews

  • with its fusion of naive, old-school character rotoscoping and lavishly airbrushed world-building, the film's visuals aim squarely for geek nostalgia and hit their target; "Spine of Night" is best when it releases itself into pure, silly, gory spectacle
    by Guy Lodge [Variety ]
  • the movie's animation, which traces the movements of live actors, is close enough to real life to feel creepy, but it's also mesmerizing
    3 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • however, for all its warring gods, merciless men, vicious spectacle, and mystical magic, this adventure is dreary and dull; while intellectually enticing and visually daring, the dogged dryness leaves a curious tale emotionally bereft
    by Kristy Puchko [IGN Movies ]
  • for all lurid appeal of the atrocities inflicted, there's a quietly elegiac tone of birth & death; The longer you are immersed in this exchange of stories, of hope dying against darkness but proving its value just by its glimmers, the more it enthralls
    3.5 of 5 by Richard Whittaker [Austin Chronicle ]
  • "The Spine of Night" packs so much into its roughly 90-minute runtime that it doesn't always give its emotional peaks room to breathe, but it never fails to arouse a feeling of wonder. This movie is a breathtaking rarity
    3.5 of 5 by Meagan Navarro [Bloody Disgusting ]
