Dark Sky Pictures Brings “Megalomaniac” in Theaters This September

Last year, the horror film known for its extreme violence, Megalomaniac, had its premiere at Fantasia.

Now, US theaters will have the opportunity to showcase the film on September 8, 2023, thanks to Dark Star Pictures.

If you’re up for it, take a peek at the trailer for Megalomaniac – but don’t say we didn’t warn you about the graphic, gory, and intense footage.

Martha and Félix are the children of the Butcher of Mons, a notorious Belgian serial killer from the 1990s. Unstable and riddled with insecurities, Martha lives vicariously through social media. Her brother, crushed by the family legacy, takes over their father’s killings. Harassed and violently assaulted at work, the docile Martha falls into madness and goes through the looking glass into the strange and terrifying world inhabited by her brother.


The film has garnered high praise from critics, including winning the top Jury Prize (Best Feature) at the Fantasia Film Festival. The movie delves into the mind of a twisted serial killer and is set against the backdrop of an unresolved true crime.

Karim Ouelhaj, the acclaimed director behind the award-winning film The Frozen Eye (2016), has brought us his fourth feature film, Megalomaniac. This latest work is his most brutal and savage creation yet, showcasing Ouelhaj’s prolific talent as a filmmaker and cementing his place as a master of his craft.

Starring in this production are Eline Schumacher, Wim Willaert, Benjamin Ramon, Pierre Nisse, and Raphaëlle Lubansu.
