Mad God

  Phil Tippett

  United States     84 minutes


Set in a hallucinogenic hellscape populated by mad scientists, defecating monsters, crushed humanoids, and voracious pig-beasts, this wildly imaginative stop-motion animated adventure follows a lone intrepid soldier on a mission through the nightmarish morass. From the warped mind of master creature-maker and special effects guru Phil Tippett, famous for everything from The Empire Strikes Back’s AT-AT walkers to Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs, Mad God is a visually inventive, hand-crafted cinematic creation—decades in the making—like Dante’s Inferno by way of Hieronymus Bosch and Clash of the Titans on acid, and yet a strikingly original dark fantasy all its own.
