Adult Stop-motion Movie "Hell and Back" Gets NSFW Trailer

We're not sure how this one slipped under our radar, but later this year an adult stop-motion comedy is due to hit cinemas. Hell and Back comes from Shadow Machine, the animation studio behind Robot Chicken and BoJack Horseman and is written and directed by veterans of Robot Chicken, Morel Orel and Saturday Night Live. The story will follow two friends who travel to the underworld to try and bring back their friend, after he is accidentally sent there. The voice cast features TJ Miller, Mila Kunis, Danny McBride and Susan Sarandon.

The trailer gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the finished result. The stop-motion animation itself is looking great, and a nice step-up from the company's TV work in the medium. The script however looks like it's going to be heavily reliant on shock-value, with plenty of rude, crude humour and naughty words. Not that there's anything wrong with that per se- as long as it's funny. Of course, whether it's actually funny or not is entirely subjective- although the first joke featured in it is really not going to win it many friends. You can judge for yourself below. Beware though- this is very much a red-band trailer.




Hell and Back has been rated R for "pervasive strong crude and sexual content, language and some drug use". It's due to hit US and Canadian cinemas on October 2nd 2015. No UK release has been announced as of the time of writing.
