Stop-Motion Horror Film ‘Mad God’ Lands On Shudder Today

by Thomas Tuna

Here’s a whole new way to look at horror.

Mad God–a new stop-motion horror film from award-winning animator and special effects maven Phil Tippett–will hit Shudder today, June 16, and a teaser trailer has dropped to give fans a look at the animated terrors within. Check out the video–courtesy of collider.com–on this page.

Tippett–the driving force behind the visual effects of such genre classics as RoboCopJurassic Park and two Star Wars entries–reportedly worked on this unique film for three decades. Mad God combines live-action, stop-motion and miniature sets to bring the director’s vision to life.

The film–which features the voice talents of Alex Cox, Niketa Roman, Satish Ratakonda, Harper Taylor and Brynn Taylor–is set in a world of monsters, mad scientists and war pigs, according to the synopsis.

In the movie, “a corroded diving bell descends into a ruined city, setting down on an ominous fortress guarded by zombie-like sentries. The Assassin emerges to explore a labyrinth of bizarre landscapes inhabited by freakish denizens. Through unexpected twists and turns, he experiences an evolution beyond his wildest comprehension.”
