Here's the complete GODKILLER: WALK AMONG US, our first foray into this experimental animation format we call illustrated-films. The first part debuted back in 2009, the feature was released in 2010. We were working on this at the same time Warner Brothers was working on Watchmen Motion Comic (each of us unaware of what the other was doing). The main difference between Watchmen Motion Comic (and motion comics in general) versus Godkiller is that Godkiller's illustrations were created specifically for this format. Also we treated this as experimental cinema and our concept from the get-go was to drive the pace through the audio like an illustrated radio-play with very limited animation.
We're working on the sequel GODKILLER: TOMORROW'S ASHES now, but in the meantime you can read the continuing adventures of Tommy, Halfpipe, and the rest in the comics available at www.godkillerseries.com
"Post-nuclear punk odyssey Godkiller is making the jump from indie comic book to 'illustrated film' with engaging animation that merges sequential art, 3-D CGI and motion graphics... a horrific yarn of apocalypse, quantum physics, culture jamming and conspiracy theory." --Scott Thill, Wired
"There are certain stories that come along every few years that challenge viewers, readers, and the world in ways almost so shockingly in your face that it is hard to process upon the first viewing. A perfect example of this would be Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE which was a sweeping narrative that encompassed many of the social issues that were plaguing the country at the time... So when I sat down to watch GODKILLER I could imagine myself being one of those critics who watched A CLOCKWORK ORANGE for the first time... GODKILLER dares to get in your face and test your best inhibitions while at the same time doing its best to make you THINK. Pizzolo is giving you a healthy dose of social commentary to go along with your bloody genre offering... a flawless piece of genre fare... a treat for fans of horror, sci-fi, comics, and animated films that is not to be missed." --Theo Scheresky, Bloody Disgusting
The epic story of a boy's quest to save his sister.
GODKILLER is a twisted, sci-fi/horror adventure about a 16 year old boy's odyssey through a post-nuke wasteland (populated by fallen gods, organ-stealing hookers, and sex-addicted technowizards) as he searches for a new heart to save his dying sister.
"Intriguing... mixes dark visuals, graphic violence, profanity and a speed metal soundtrack into an oddly alluring post-nuclear holocaust." --John DeNardo, SF Signal
Based on the comic book by award-winning writer-director Matt Pizzolo and illustrator Anna Muckcracker, GODKILLER mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it.
Starring the voice talents of Lance Henriksen (AVP: Alien vs Predator), Danielle Harris (Halloween movies), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), Justin Pierre (singer Motion City Soundtrack), and Davey Havok (singer A.F.I.).
