Ahead of its SXSW premiere, here's the first look at the animated fantasy.

Written and directed by Philip Gelatt and Morgan Galen King, animated feature The Spine of Night is an ultra-violent, hand-rotoscoped epic fantasy inspired by the cult classic works of animators Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta. The film sees a disparate group of heroes band together to save their land from dark forces.

The all-star voice cast includes Richard E. Grant, Lucy Lawless, Patton Oswalt, Betty Gabriel, Joe Manganiello, Abby Savage, Larry Fessenden and Rob McClure.

The Spine of Night premieres at the SXSW Film Festival on March 18th.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

This epic 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.
