Alexander Cheng has modified the famous 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West, flavored it with twisted mechanical monsters, and dropped it squarely in a dying world. True to form, the story explores a Buddhist path of awakening. If that doesn't sound badass enough, check out the still we ran a month ago and then watch the trailer below!

Rampage In Heaven is a sprawling, violent, post-apocalyptic short film rooted in the 16th century Chinese novel, 'Journey To The West.'


The film follows the character of 'The Monkey King' as he travels across a nightmarish, dying world where all natural elements have been replaced by twisted, mechanical recreations. Upon discovering other survivors, both human and monstrous, he sets out on a self-destructive mission to become more human himself. After carving a savage path on his journey, he comes face-to-face with the costs of his vanity.

Using iconic characters and a similar framework to 'Journey To The West', the film explores the insecurities and turmoil along the path to understanding identity. Featuring an all-encompassing art direction that blends live-action, animation and puppetry, it's designed to be grasped purely by its visuals, regardless of spoken language.










They're still looking to raise funds to finish the film, so go to their kickstarter page and give em some dough!
