I watched this film like 5 times when I was 10 and I've been struggling for two years now to find it. I remember it being rather bloody and gory, and the animation style I believe can be described as explicit, somehow realistic.

I think it was a story about native-Americans, a tribal vibe nonetheless. I remember the opening scene, a river, grass, next to a forest. I remember cannibalism scenes, some neanderthal-like creatures with black eyes that creeped me out, flesh of dead animals hanging from trees and lots of blood. I think the main character was fighting the aforementioned humanoids. The whole thing had a fantasy, demonish feel to it (for a 10 year old, I guess).

I also think it was created after 1990 and before 2004.

    Could this be the music video for Pearl Jam's "Do the Evolution"? Jan 5, 2018 at 19:11
  • Is there anything specifically that made this Science Fictional or Fantastical?

The dead flesh hanging from the tree made me think of this cartoon version of the Population Vuh, the Mayan creation myth. I saw it on public television in the early 1990s.

A few minutes in, the first true humans, One Hunter and Seven Hunter, are murdered by the ogrish demons of the underworld and hung up in a tree.
