[Review] Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal EP-4
"Terror Under the Blood Moon"
Welcome, F_J here. I caught Primal on [Adult Swim] and I instantly regretted missing the first three episodes of this limited run series. My eyes were glued to the scenes of raptors and other predators doing what hungry predators do best.
Our protagonist is a stoic caveman and the brutal battle sequences only yield to fleeting moments of deafening quiet that really drive home the atmosphere of man being precariously low on the food chain. Genndy Tartakovsky is a master of "Show, don't tell" and his Midas touch has once again made pure gold.
If you don't think hard ass art of a caveman riding a t-rex fending off swarms of primordial beasts is the tightest shit ever animated, The Addams Family movie came out today- it might be more your speed.
