A Blu-ray release has been announced by Acorn Media for the highly acclaimed Mad God, a film by Award-winning artist, animator, and filmmaker – the legendary Phil Tippett (Star Wars, Jurassic Park, RoboCop, Starship Troopers).
This critically-acclaimed and mind-blowing masterpiece was 30 years in the making and has earned plaudits around the globe for its creative genius, cinematic originality, and inspired grit.
Equipped with a gas mask and a crumbling map, the Assassin, an iron-clad humanoid, descends into a rusty, peril-laden underworld of grime, blood, tortured souls, decrepit bunkers and unsettling monstrosities forged from the most primordial horrors of the subconscious mind.
As the stealthy invader meanders through the labyrinthine post-apocalyptic wasteland on a mysterious mission, going deeper and deeper into the nightmarish realm, he eventually reaches his destination… the heart of this grotesque tower of torture. But what awaits him there?
One of the amazing things about this production is every set, creature, and effigy in this macabre movie is hand-crafted and painstakingly animated using traditional stop-motion techniques.
‘Extraordinary work… a work of historic significance, made by a master in his field’
‘Beautiful and disgusting, mean and awe-inspiring… amazing… the kind of fantasy that too often
seems to exist in the magical realm of unproduced dream projects’
‘A momentous work of creative genius’
