You read about it here first in 2021. Now, the world’s first fan-funded Swissploitation horror action epic has landed Stateside. Ahead of its revolutionary direct-to-the-fans release scheduled for December 8, 2022, and theatrical runs in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France and Spain beginning on November 24, MAD HEIDI is making the rounds at international film festivals to the delight of audiences and critics.
On October 14th, MAD HEIDI made its triumphant U.S. debut at Screamfest in Los Angeles. Screenings at the Telluride Horror Show and New Orleans Screamfest quickly followed. North American audiences will have another chance to catch MAD HEIDI when it has its Canadian premiere at the Vancouver Horror Show on November 8.
If you missed Johannes Hartmann and Sandro Klopfstein‘s insane, dystopian take on Johanna Spyri’s classic children’s tale during its festival screenings or just need a quick hit of Swiss-style gore to hold you over until December 8, you can check out the film’s trailer below.
