Eli Roth is best known for freaky slasher flicks like Hotel and Cabin Fever, but who knew he was so adept at directing an animated video game teaser. Apparently Roth is a huge Dark Souls fan so he teamed up with game publishers Bandai Namco and a crew of animators at Six Point Harness to summon this startling anime-style trailer titled, The Witches, for the upcoming release of Dark  Souls III.  

Peer into the twisted mind of the horror guru in this murderous, magical fable of a knight who stumbles into the wrong room and companion behind-the-scenes short, then tell us if you believe Roth and Dark Souls is a delicious pairing forged in the medieval horror game's fiery cauldrons.  Dark Souls III appears for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows on April 12.
