A corroded diving bell descends amidst a ruined city and the Assassin emerges from it to explore a labyrinth of bizarre landscapes inhabited by freakish denizens. 

Starring: Hans Brekke, Alex Cox, and Niketa Roman

Directed and written by: Phil Tippett

  “Mad God” is a good title, but this also could have been called “Mad Crazy” among many other things! It opens with scrolls with nothing good written on them before diving into a dark and strange world. The Assassin begins his journey across this land with the first bizarre thing being him stepping on some gnomes. Yes, gnomes that seem to be arguing get crushed by his foot! 

  As his journey continues, the audience comes across all kinds of creatures, and is treated to crazy scene after crazy scene. In one scene two creatures, who look like they’re working in a mine, begin to fight only to be stopped in an electric manner. The audience gets to view a wild surgery scene taking them all over the place. The film stumbles into a tank like battle that has its own twist to it.

  The film might be far out there, but it’s clearly a work of art when it comes to animation. The creatures are amazing no matter how big or small they are. There are no limits to what they do, and everything comes off so smoothly. The aforementioned scenes stand out among many more. It’s not surprising to see why this film took so long to make.

  Not to say it’s a problem, but the story, or lack of one might bother some. Yes, it starts with following the Assassin, but then it just seems to want to dive further into a nightmare of a world. There’s no rhyme or reason for some of the things that happen other than just pushing the boundaries of darkness. With no dialogue, the audience is left to figure out things on their own. The one thing they will know is there will be no happy ending!

  Much like another recent film, “Frank & Zed,” this one is worth seeing for how the film was made if not for anything else. The animation is great especially with how all of the creatures move around. The world they create is a true nightmare. It just gets darker and darker bringing some of these creatures to life as others die. The story might not make complete sense, but in this case it doesn’t seem to matter. Just sit back and enjoy the animation in “Mad God.” With that I give it 3.5 pools of blood.

Hailey and her brother Kevin visit their grandpa’s farm for the weekend. They discover that the caretaker has vanished, and Grandpa has a new nightly ritual of sharing a drink with his deceased wife and another unseen entity.

Starring: Jack C. Hays, Eden McGuire, and Ben Richardson

Directed and written by: Ben Richardson

  After losing loved ones people can feel “A Little Dead,” but what if they think the dead are still with them. Hailey (Eden McGuire) has come to visit her grandpa (Jack C. Hays), and quickly sees things aren't as they should be. The caretaker is no where to be found, and grandpa is acting a little weird. He sets a table with drinks for three people, and two of those drinks apparently are for people who aren’t there.

  Hailey’s brother Kevin (Ben Richardson) shows up not too long after, and starts to notice grandpa’s strange behavior for himself. The two siblings are somewhat puzzled, and definitely concerned about what’s going on. Is grandpa just grieving the loss of his wife, or is he having some kind of mental breakdown? Once again grandpa sets up his drinking ritual, but this time something goes horribly wrong.

  It doesn’t take long for this short film to set up the tension for both the siblings, and the audience. While the siblings worry about grandpa, the audience will worry about the potential horror to come. The unease is amplified with the darkness around the farm, and dim lighting inside. Oh, and of course grandpa doesn’t help with his odd explanations about what’s going on, and his ritual. The best part is definitely the payoff, as the siblings and audience get answers to what has been happening with grandpa. It becomes easy to see why this film has been selected at several film festivals, and surely to win some awards along the way!
