THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION SHOW
“…the definitive feature film documentary on English post punk industrial band Killing Joke… truly an odyssey…”
ILC Productions and Coffee Films present a feature length music documentary charting the turbulent, dramatic and often unbelievable journey of the British post-punk industrial legends Killing Joke.
Through a barrage of music, video and deeply personal interviews shot across six continents over the last twelve years, the film traces three and a half decades of turbulent, chaotic history through both archive and new footage. From rituals at Stonehenge to worship on the Nazca Lines, recording sessions in the heart of the Great Pyramid and exploration of a parallel universe on an Icelandic glacier, and the search for a mysterious island that could survive the Tribulation:
This is the definitive story of Killing Joke, and you’ve never heard or seen anything else like it.
Pre-orders for the Deluxe Edition DVD are now available…

“…Plays like a rock doc re-imagined by Dennis Wheatley… 4 stars”
“DIY, dark arts and chartbusters pepper this idiosyncratic story of the Joke’s four-decade career… 3 stars”
“…Stunning in its intensity… an outstanding musical biography… an emotional roller-coaster in a way that has to be seen to be understood.”
Louder Than War
“Wow, ten years in the making and it’s a two and a half hour ride and it’s riveting… The film is brilliantly put together, so much incredible footage… One of the best music documentaries I’ve seen in years. Hilarious, baffling, brilliant, bonkers. Post-punk’s clown prince of faux-evil darkness won’t disappoint. You have to get to this. It will totally get to you. I already can’t wait to see it again. I just know it’s going to reward repeat viewings.”
Off the Tracks
“…Bound to astonish even the most loyal Joke fan. The extent of the archive material and the interviews from different decades take you into the dark center of Killing Joke. This gigantic two-and-a-half-hour movie holds the viewers’ interest for its entire length and draws them to the twisted world of Joke. No self-respecting music fan should miss this.”
Rokumentti Film Festival
“…An astonishing odyssey. To die for. Seriously.”
In-Edit Film Festival
“…A treat, bravely pulling the dimensional veil back and allowing all gathered to spy on fascinating moments in the band’s history, intertwined with illuminating insights from current members, past members, associates and fans…”
