From master creature-maker and special effects guru Phil Tippet, comes a decades long, handcrafted passion project that must be seen to be believed.
Set in a hallucinogenic hellscape populated by mad scientists, defecating monsters and crushed humanoids, Mad God is a wildly imaginative, stop-motion animated adventure that follows a lone, intrepid soldier on a mission through a Miltonesque world.
Phil Tippett is best known for his pioneering work at Lucasfilm and Industrial Light and Magic on such films as Robocop, Starship Troopers and of course Star Wars. Mad God is a visually inventive, hand-crafted cinematic creation—try to imagine Dante’s Inferno by way of Hieronymus Bosch and Clash of the Titans on acid. That said, Mad God is a strikingly original, dark fantasy all its own.
