A film by Chino Moya

Cast: Kate Dickie, Ned Dennehy, Géza Röhrig, Burn Gorman, Tanya Reynolds, Johann Myers


An otherworldly journey through a Europe in decline – a collection of darkly humorous, fantasy tales about ill-fated characters and doomed fortune. In a futuristic, post-apocalyptic world, K and Z roam the streets on the lookout for corpses and something even more valuable – fresh meat.


★★★★ “A riptide of surrealism runs through Chino Moya’s ambitious debut feature”… “you’ve got to be heartened by the film’s commitment to originality.” Phil Hoad, Guardian

“There’s barely a frame of the film which wouldn’t stand on its own.” Wendy Ide, Screendaily

★★★★ “A nightmarish modern folktale of the strangest and highest order. Highly recommended” Radio Times

★★★★ “A cool and creative dystopian nightmare” The Hollywood News

★★★★ “On a technical note, the film is brilliant… The cast are very good too” Paul Chapinal,

★★★★ “Moya has created a modern anthology movie like no other, full of great performances and its own unique style” Nerdly

★★★★ “Undergods is a darkly crafted movie that had me gripped from the start” Karen Woodham, Blazing Minds

“Acidly funny, with strong performances all round” HeyUGuys

“With nods to directors such as Terry Gilliam and Ben Wheatley, Undergods is a strong debut feature” Movies In ★★★★ “Undergods is a thoroughly entertaining, thought-provoking watch with striking visuals, a killer soundtrack and a harrowingly human message” The Upcoming

★★★★ “There’s brilliant world building on offer here, taking advantage of the distinctive, unfamiliar European locations” Charles Gant, Heat


★★★★ “Moya’s excellent screenplay combined with stellar performances all-round” Starburst Magazine

Undergods is proper sci-fi, brooding, threatening, compelling and with an uncomfortable edge that knocks you into the middle of next week” Film Authority

“Moya’s vision may be bleak — and “vision” is the right word to describe the Spanish-born director’s stunning capacity to create images and atmosphere — but there’s something unnervingly familiar about the world he creates in his feature debut.” Peter Debruge, Variety

“exceptional debut”  “Undergods is poignant, hypnotic sci-fi that examines the raw nerves of the human condition while the world falls apart.”
