I often say to myself, “self, why aren’t there more R-rated animated movies in the world? I mean, Japan has the whole anime porn thing dialed in to great (and creepy) success and clearly we Americans love us some raunchy animated TV (Family Guy, Rick and Morty, South Park) but no studio has really dipped a toe into adult oriented animated features. What’s up with that?”
Well, it looks like my silent conversations to no one have been answered as, if you look above you can click on and watch a very Not-Safe-For-Work trailer for the new stop-motion animated film Hell & Back. I think it seems pretty funny but have to admit, the stop-motion animation looks a little, as the kids call it, janky. Then again the film was made by the folks who make Robot Chicken and their half-assed claymation stuff is always pretty damned funny. Plus the film has a pretty amazing cast that not surprisingly includes T.J. Miller who, as I’ve pointed out before, is now in every movie whether we like it or not. Hell & Back hits theaters October 2.
