The captivating and twisted sci-fi animated horror film Mad God, a Shudder Original is now out on SteelBook and DVD.
Mad God is directed and created by brilliant Oscar and Emmy Award-winning stop-motion animator and special effects supervisor Phil Tippett, founder of Tippett Studio and the creative powerhouse involved in such classics as RoboCop, Starship Troopers, Jurassic Park, Star Wars: A New Hope, and The Empire Strikes Back.
Mad God is an experimental animated film set in a world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs. A corroded diving bell descends amidst a ruined city, settling down upon an ominous fortress guarded by zombie-like sentries. The Assassin emerges to explore a labyrinth of bizarre, desolate landscapes inhabited by freakish denizens. Through unexpected twists and turns, he experiences an evolution beyond his wildest comprehension.
A labor of love that has taken 30 years to complete, Mad God combines live-action and stop-motion, miniature sets, and other innovative techniques to bring Tippett’s wholly unique and grotesquely beautiful vision to life. A trailblazer in his field, Tippett’s work has been praised by Steven Spielberg, Paul Verhoeven, Lucasfilm President Kathy Kennedy, and many more, and continues to this day to push the boundaries of the animation genre.
