Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic (2010)
A fantasy directed by Shukou Murase, Yasuomi Umetsu, Mike Disa, Victor Cook, Jong-Sik Nam, Sang-Jin Kim and Lee Seung-Gyu.
Dante fights his way through hell to save his girlfriend.
This isn't the regular Inferno story, but it does function well. An animated assault on hell is a good idea for something to animate, as it provides lots of opportunities to design demons and fight scenes. Dante kills demons left and right as the demons get wilder when he goes deeper into the circles of hell. There is even a scene that looks like Peter Chung style, but sadly, it isn't master Chung animating. The picture with this post is the "Chung style" Dante with his guide. Overall, the finished product is nothing short of awesome and I'm going 1 step further: best. This is DEFINITELY something to watch!
