Godkiller: Walk Among Us #2 2009 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
“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.”—Wired
The epic story of a boy’s quest to save his sister.
Based on the comic book by award-winning writer-director Matt Pizzolo and illustrator Anna Muckcracker, GODKILLER takes place in a dark-future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy’s odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City.
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 4, 5, H1, H2), 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.), this Limited Edition Episodic release of GODKILLER brings the serialized nature of comic books to DVD. Three episodes will be released regularly starting October 2009 before the series is collected into a standalone feature-length movie in mid 2010.
- A beautifully mastered widescreen presentation of GODKILLER: WALK AMONG US Episode 2 (28 mins);
- High-resolution, digital PDFs of the Godkiller comic book issues 3 & 4 (64 pages);

[Set in the near future, GODKILLER: SILENT WAR tells the story of Joe Junior, a 17-year old draft-dodger who is recruited by an armed cult of populist assassins and thrust into a secret world of international cabals, alien conspiracies, and the countdown to Armageddon.]
