To celebrate the release of Mad God, we spoke to director Phil Tippet about finally bringing us his world.

Mad God is a dystopian stop motion film about an assassin who is on a mission and has to enter the seedy underworld to complete it.

We spoke with Tippet about his thirty year long project and how it feels showcasing it to the world. We also talked about working with Paul Verheovan, George Lucas, and Steven Speilberg.

Mad God is out on Blu-ray right now.

Equipped with a gas mask and a crumbling map, the Assassin, an iron-clad humanoid, descends into a rusty, peril-laden underworld of grime, blood, tortured souls, decrepit bunkers and unsettling monstrosities forged from the most primordial horrors of the subconscious mind. As the stealthy invader meanders through the labyrinthine post-apocalyptic wasteland on a mysterious mission, going deeper and deeper into the nightmarish realm, he eventually reaches his destination… the heart of this grotesque tower of torture. But what awaits him there?
