Mad Heidi - The first Swissploitation film.

These filmakers are looking for funding for the first "Swissploitation" film.

Quote:
Itís all been there: Blaxploitation, Mexploitation, Sexploitation, Nunsploitation, Naziploitation. We think itís about time for the first Swissploitation film!

Let's take famous Swiss mountain girl Heidi, cheese and the beautiful alps and combine them with Nazi gold, chocolate and Swiss Army Knives. Add a few gallons of blood and lots of fun. Thatís MAD HEIDI!

The Heidi story moved the hearts of whole generations around the world. But meanwhile Heidi has grown up, just like us. She ainít no sweet little kid anymore.

In the near future the world is sinking into war and chaos, but Switzerland has sealed itself off as an island of the rich. An egocentric heir of a multi-billionaire cheese empire is ruling the country with an iron fist to maintain an artificial postcard-image of Switzerland. When Heidi is abducted by the brutal government troops, she must fight back against the cheese-fueled machinery of hate. They will soon realize they just ed with the wrong Heidi!
Who's up to support this? I'm tempted but beware, the trailer is very graphic and violent.

It is pretty violent. But campy. But really violent.

Ah now.. in fairness, a large Toblerone would knock out your teeth quicker than a punch would.

Well, a guy getting a hole blown through his head, then Heidi slicing someone in half or plucking their eye out with a Swiss army knife is pretty graphic, whether it bothers you or not is entirely up to you.

Re: Mad Heidi - The first Swissploitation film.

I heard it was based on a true story and the characters depicted do represent some people in real life.

Is that true Urs Max?
