You will be able to see the film, which has been created thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, starting today.

Whatever type of cinema you like, there is a class of films that delight all moviegoers: those considered the craziest. They’re perfect for watching with friends and laughing at the crazy things and wacky things that happen on screen. One of those who falls into this group is Mad Heidi. Mainly, because she takes one of your childhood animation characters and turns it into something completely opposite.

The title, which mixes the genres of horror, gore, action, comedy and adventure, will have already given you the odd clue. Mad Heidi transforms the candid series girl from the famous animated series Heidi into a bloody heroine.

Directed by directorial couple Johannes Hatmann and Sandro Lopfstein, this film is set in a dystopian Switzerland that has fallen under the fascist rule of an evil cheese magnate.
