Halo-8 has given Bloody Disgusting an exclusive look a pretty cool brand new preview clip for the illustrated-film Godkiller, whose first episode comes to DVD this Tuesday Oct 6th. The clip that can be viewed beyond the break is a monologue sequence where Dr. Mulciber (Lance Henriksen) talks about his use of sex-magic to solve crimes. Godkiller is slated for a limited theatrical release in January 2010, but Halo-8 has put together an innovative release campaign by splitting the movie into three shortform, episodic DVDs released bi-monthly leading up to the full theatrical release (similar to how comic books are released before the complete graphic novel).
The first episode comes to DVD on Tuesday Oct 6th and Meltdown Comics will be hosting a free screening on Wednesday Oct 7th in their art gallery attached to the store on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood.
A post-nuke odyssey about a young boy venturing into the savage land of Outer City on a quest to find a new heart for his dying sister, GODKILLER was directed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo (Threat) and features voice performances by sci-horror legend Lance Henriksen (Aliens), scream queens Danielle Harris (Halloween 4, 5, I, II) & Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), horror hero Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), sci-fi starlet Nicki Clyne (Battlestar Galactica), cult icon Lydia Lunch (Richard Kern’s Hardcore), and singers Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack and Davey Havok of A.F.I.
The dark, unrated film pioneers a new style of animation called ‘illustrated-films,’ developed by Pizzolo with his producing partner, Emmy-winner Brian Giberson. Utilizing the comic book’s sequential art by illustrator Anna Muckcracker, the illustrated-film adds 3D CGI, motion graphics, elaborate sound design, and dramatic voice performances for an edgy, sophisticated, intricately detailed new form of animation. Danielle Harris told iF Magazine “its more like moving art than animation, with very good writing.” Upcoming illustrated-films from Halo-8 include Tim Seeley’s LOADED BIBLE and James Farr’s XOMBIE: REANIMATED.
