“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
“There are certain stories that come along every few years that challenge viewers, readers, and the world in ways almost so shockingly in your face that it is hard to process upon the first viewing. A perfect example of this would be Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of A Clockwork Orange which was a sweeping narrative that encompassed many of the social issues that were plaguing the country at the time… So when I sat down to watch Godkiller I could imagine myself being one of those critics who watched A Clockwork Orange for the first time… Godkiller dares to get in your face and test your best inhibitions while at the same time doing its best to make you THINK. Pizzolo is giving you a healthy dose of social commentary to go along with your bloody genre offering… a flawless piece of genre fare… a treat for fans of horror, sci-fi, comics, and animated films that is not to be missed.” –Bloody Disgusting

Godkiller is a twisted, sci-fi/horror adventure about a 16 year old boy’s odyssey through a post-nuke wasteland (populated by fallen gods, organ-stealing slavegirls, and sex-addicted technowizards) as he searches for a new heart to save his dying sister.

“A genre-star-studded opus… frightening and violent.” –Fangoria
“Matt Pizzolo sprinkles a little of everything naughty and twisted into this story and the result is an unpredictable adventure/horror/sci-fi mash-up that is definitely not for kids, but it’s damn cool… The terrors and debauchery in Godkiller have to be seen to be believed… Looked at from a distance, this is a fairy tale about a boy on a quest to save someone he cares about, but as one becomes invested in this film, it drags you through the gutter that is Outer City and relishes in the filth that goes on in its winding streets and wretched alleyways. Pizzolo’s story really pulls the reader through the grime and keeps you on Tommy’s side so we care about this adventure and root for the innocent kid to make it out of this hell alive…. Anna Muckcracker shows a talent for both design and dramatic angles resulting in a film that sucks you in and makes you feel filthy for being there. Godkiller is one of those stories which sticks with you long after seeing it. It’s filled with sordid fun and cracked horror. Pizzolo has a talent for both quick and heady dialogue as well as creative and fresh concepts that make this devious world of GODKILLER a place you’d want to dive into despite how dark it is.” –Aint It Cool News
“Matt Pizzolo’s tale of love, death, and organ harvesting; all set in a disgusting post apocalyptic wasteland. Looks as fantastic as you can expect… it’s hard not to give this a 9/10!” –Sins of Cinema
“Usually I can’t stand motion comics… however, I was somehow drawn to Godkiller’s comic aspect. The only word I can use to describe Godkiller’s tone is grimdark. The episode’s grim-darkness is clear, but not over applied, with all kinds of crazy organ-stealing, brutality and cannibalism, murder, and prostitution. Another cliffhanger has brought me to my knees with anticipation and I again cannot wait for the next volume to come out. This DVD earns every bit of the 4.5 grade I’m giving it. And you owe it to yourselves to watch it. 4.5/5” –EuroCultAV
