''Dragon Hill'' (original name ''La Colina del Dragón'') is a Spanish direct-to-video (at least outside of Spain) movie directed by Ángel Izquierdo, who regards this as his masterpiece.

This animated movie is quite, um, [[MindScrew "confusing"]], as the plot suggests the movie is somehere in the middle of some series, even though it is (at least as far as it is known) the "beginning", so to speak. To summarize the plot, there's an [[LostWorld isolated place]] called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dragon Hill]] that is the home for [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]] (duh!). There is a woman called Maude who tries to make them technologically advanced, and a wizard called Septimus who was imprisoned there and who wants to escape; to do so he somehow makes a boy called Kevin, who wants to be a knight, end up in Dragon Hill too. It gets confusing from here. Kevin apparently stays in Dragon Hill, not missing his former life in the castle at all.

There is a sequel, known as ''El Cubo Mágico''. With repetitive animation (often re-used from the former movie), AesopAmnesia, and an AssPull ending, [[SarcasmMode it is quite well made.]]

!!Contains examples of:

* AesopAmnesia: The whole point of the first movie is that its absolutely not safe to keep Septimus on Dragon Hill. Then why the Hell does the sequel concludes that the best thing is to keep him there!?
* ConspicuousCGI: Fucking everywhere! The second movie, low budget as it was, even has the last frame almost entirely CGI rendered!
* DarkIsNotEvil: As much as cute as Elphi and his family are, most other dragons are fairly ugly and monstrous, and yet most are decent. Somewhat subverted with [[BigEater a certain wyvern like dragon]], which at times proves to be a threat but is chaotically neutral (somewhat)
* ElementalPowers: The classical elements are well present in both movies: in the first, you need to use one of them to get into Dragon Hill, while on the second [[spoiler:the magic cube reacts to either one of them (see FridgeLogic below), creating an extremely NightmareRetardant EldritchAbomination]]. Also Septimus uses what appears to be [[LightIsNotGood light beams]] or something like that.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Tristan, the pig like servant of Septimus.
* FakeBrit: Probably the voice actors of most characters, which have stereotypical british accents. We don't know exactly where the movie takes place (Dragon Hill is isolated from time and space appearently, but what about the home places of the human characters?), and both in Septimus' home place and Kevin's (both medieval european looking) a british accent would be endlessly more accurate than an american one.
* GenieInABottle: The second movie has one, who uses simple animation used again and again.
* MindScrew: Aside from the occasional BigLippedAlligatorMoment, the plot, specially that of the first movie, will make the viewers more confused than anything.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Western looking, but thats about it; there's absolutely no consensus in their physical form. The main dragon characters (Elphi and his family) resemble slightly komodo dragons with an arrow like tail tip, ridiculously small wings and a mammalian face akin to that of Goofy (only tooth and dog-nose less).
* SchizoTech
* SealedEvilInACan: Septimus in the first movie, the Magic Cube in the later.
* ShoutOut: The animation resembles Universal's last known animated movies (aka [[Creator/DonBluth Land Before Time]] and WesternAnimation/{{Balto}} sequels); in fact, at least in Portugal it was distributed by Universal Pictures (don't ask why)
** The scenes in the credits also resemble those of BrotherBear. Even if this movie came first, of course.
* TheStinger: The first movie has a series of funny "bloopers" during the credits; see above.
