Mad God

Follow The Assassin through a forbidding world of tortured souls, decrepit bunkers, and wretched monstrosities forged from the most primordial horrors of the subconscious mind. Every set, creature, and effigy in this macabre masterpiece is hand-crafted and painstakingly animated using traditional stop-motion techniques. MAD GOD is a labor of love, a testament to the power of creative grit, and an homage to the timeless art of stop-motion animation. Ready your eyes. Ready your spirit. Prepare to meet your maker.

USA, 2022, 85 minutes, Directed by Phil Tippett

  • “For animation and sci-fi fans with strong stomachs and adventurous tastes... ‘Mad God’ is a must. There’s never been a movie quite like it: an unflinching tour through the darkest recesses of a brilliant artist’s mind.”

    – Noel Murray, LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • “If you're any kind of sicko like me, this is an absolute treat.”

    – Darren Franich, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
  • “Merging live action, stunning stop-motion animation and endearingly awkward puppetry, this bleak experiment from the visual-effects titan Phil Tippett is best viewed on a very large screen…”

    – Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • “Gory & grisly, hitting a sort of ‘Eraserhead’ meets Brothers Quay median, it’s a dystopian-nightmare delight that is the ‘Heavy Metal’ of clay.”

    – Dennis Harvey, 48 HILLS
  • “Phil Tippett’s phantasmagorical ‘Mad God’ is astounding.”

    – Dom Sinacola, PASTE MAGAZINE
  • “This is a work of a genuine visionary, and has all the makings of an instant cult classic”

    – John Bleasdale, SIGHT & SOUND.
