When a lone samurai sets his course towards the path of blood, unknown dangers and terror awaits. Will his great swordsmanship be enough to survive the treacherous demon lord and his minions? Path of Blood is a highly stylized paper animated short film that promises more paper cuts than you can handle.
Animated and directed by Eric Power, Path of Blood at first appears like a made in the bedroom, South Park styled homage to the samurai movie, however as we delve deeper into Power’s short its turns out to be a highly detailed, beautifully crafted piece full of comedy and gore. But what else would you expect from the man who brought us the meticulously crafted Tatooine, the original Star Wars Trilogy retold via paper animation.
