'Kill Bill' Meets 'The Sound of Music' in First-Ever Swissploitation Film 'Mad Heidi' [Trailer]

Be Swiss or be dead.

Hailing from the producers of Iron Sky, we got our first taste of director Johannes Hartmann's Mad Heidi back in 2018, and while we're still waiting on a release date, we've been provided with some more details on the film and a new teaser trailer.

The little girl from the alps is back...she's all grown up and she's MAD as hell. Mad Heidi is an action-adventure-comedy-horror parody of the much-loved children's storybook character Heidi. Now all grown up, Heidi is just a girl from the Alps in an alternative Switzerland that has fallen under fascist rule. Little does she know that her yearning for personal freedom will be the spark that ignites a revolution.

"From fondue torture to death by chocolate, Mad Heidi is a true Swissploitation film. Think Kill Bill meets The Sound of Music. The much-anticipated film will have all that fans of the genre could desire."

If you liked any of the aforementioned films, Mad Max, or Monty Python, chances are you'll love Mad Heidi.

In addition to being the world's first Swisspolitation movie, Mad Heidi will be influenced by its fans, with the chance for them to participate in the production of the film. Moreover, Mad Heidi is the most successful crowdfunded film project in Switzerland to date, with more than 2500 fans from 40 countries supporting the project by buying merchandise and "Mad Heidi Bonds" worth CHF 250,000 (approximately $274,843 USD).

Head on over to the film's official website to learn more.
