The Spine of Night Comes To 4K

"The Spine of Night" tells the haunting history of a land that never was. The movie ties together multiple stories through two ancient beings sharing memories — an ancient keeper called The Guardian, voiced by Richard E. Grant, and the swamp witch Tzod, voiced by "Xena: Warrior Princess" herself, Lucy Lawless. The intertwining tales begin with dark ambition, then reach all sorts of bloody and unexpected heights as the world expands. The film also stars Patton Oswalt ("Young Adult"), Betty Gabriel ("Get Out"), and Joe Manganiello ("True Blood").

"The Spine of Night" is coming to DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD DVD/Blu-ray SteelBook® on February 1, 2022: the DVD will be available at $27.97, the Blu-ray for $28.96, and the 4K UHD DVD/Blu-ray SteelBook for $35.97. After making its way around the festival circuit, the film made its theatrical and digital debut back in October 29, 2021, so it's also available to rent or buy digitally. You can read the full movie synopsis below.

This epic fantasy tale, about the history of a land that never was, begins when an ambitious young man steals forbidden knowledge from a sacred plant. He falls to its darker temptations and in so doing, unleashes ages of suffering onto mankind. As his power grows over the years, it falls to people of different ilk and culture to attempt to stop him. Among those who stand against him are a daring tomb-robber, star-crossed lovers, a maniacal necromancer, winged assassins, and an undying guardian.
