Prepare yourself for a wicked odyssey of blood, cheese, and a twisted reimagination of the classic tale of “Heidi.” Fathom Events, in collaboration with Raven Banner Releasing and Swissploitation Films, is thrilled to present the premiere of the highly anticipated modern grindhouse epic, Mad Heidi. Mark your calendars for a special one-night engagement on Wednesday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. local time in theaters nationwide.
Mad Heidi takes us on a wild and thrilling journey, introducing a grown-up Heidi (Alice Lucy) living an idyllic life in the Swiss Alps alongside her beloved grandfather (David Schofield). However, this picturesque landscape is overshadowed by an increasingly dystopian world ruled by a ruthless dictator, Our Very Swiss Leader (Casper Van Dien), with a bizarre obsession for dairy and dreams of global dominance.
When Heidi’s goat-herding lover (Kel Matsena) is brutally murdered for distributing illegal cheese, she embarks on a quest for vengeance, pitting her against fierce female prison inmates, cheese-fueled Swiss super-soldiers, ninja nuns, and more. Together, they will strive to dismantle the tyrannical regime and restore freedom to Switzerland.
The Fathom Event screening of Mad Heidi offers an extraordinary experience for fans. Join stars Casper Van Dien and Alice Lucy, along with co-directors Johannes Hartmann and Sandro Klopfstein, as they introduce this groundbreaking film. Get ready to be immersed in the twisted world of Mad Heidi, where the boundaries of grindhouse cinema are pushed to their limits.
