City of Rott News Coverage – Online Links

Some online news covered the City of Rott Otherworld 2018 Trailer announcement in early September 2018, and also some info on City of Rott as well. (Links active when posted)

And below is a cool 2018 note about City of Rott on Animation Magazine’s official website relating to an upcoming film festival:

Select horror screenings and events will be held in the open air as Animafest in Art Park: Three Nights of Total Horror. The section comprises “Creepy Animation Night” – featuring short films selected by Anim’est Festival Director Mihai Mitrică (Bucharest), as well as “Claymation Horror” – a compilation of stop-motion shorts by the viral star of trash-gore humor, Lee Hardcastle. Frank Sudol’s feature film City of Rott, another zombie creation marked by unique aesthetics, will also screen at Art Park.

Below is another, older article written by Ryan Ball for Animation Magazine, regarding 2008’s Dead Fury and City of Rott.

Another article on the animation world news site, awn .com highlights City of Rott recently again, at a prior film fest in 2018:

The three Art Park screenings concluded with City of Rott by Frank J. Sudol from the United States.  Inspired by the classic zombie films, Sudol’s 2006 feature film is the tale of a grumpy old man and his talking walker who set out alone, unarmed, and losing his mind to buy a new pair of shoes in the city of Rott.  The city is infected with hordes of flesh-eating zombies and the crazy old man only has his walker to battle the living dead.  Will he fall victim to the Rott Worms that inhabit the zombies decaying brains?  The film was entirely created, written, and directed by Sudol who is currently in production on a sequel to City of Rott called City of Rott: Other Worlds.  A short trailer for the new film was shown following the feature.


And here’s a 2016 article listing City of Rott in a top 15 Animated Horror Movies, which is cool to discover.

One more link I found, of a Top Ten Animated Horror Movies list I found by doing a search on yahoo for “animated zombie horror”. The list includes City of Rott (2006) and Dead Fury (2008).

UPDATE: Here’s a cool link to a Russian Fan Site, VK .com, of my cartoons and art work. It’s in Russian, but with a text translator, it’s fun to learn about my fans from Russia. They have a lot of information posted over the years. Thank you!






Anim’Est Film Festival 2018 – City of Rott

Above is the link to the Creepy Animation Night 2018 for the Romania film festival, Anim’Est 2018, which will show City of Rott on the big screen for night 2 of the Creepy Animation Night Film Festival. Much thanks to Anim’Est International Animation Film Festival for their interest in the film City of Rott. The Film Festival runs from September 28 to October 7, 2018 in Bucharest, Romania. This will be the 2nd film festival showing City of Rott in 2018 by request. The first was the Animafest Zagreb, in Croatia on June 5, 2018. Here’s the original story link on this site:

Below are details from the official Anim’Est Film Fest Website about the event:


The 10th edition of the Creepy Animation Night showcases a marathon of bizarre and horror animations, with the newest titles of the genre, in an event that thrills the senses and the imagination. 

We start the horror screening at midnight, in two venues of the festival, Cinemateca Eforie and Cinema Elvire Popesco. The selection is made up of three blocks of films, with two intermissions.

In Cinemateca Eforie, the screening is preceded by the first performance of OrkiPP – an audio-visual project bringing together illustrator Alexandru Ciubotariu (akaPisica Pătrată) and the shoegazers Orkid. Starting from common sensations, ideas and images, Orkid and Pisica Pătratăă will do a 40-minute long synchronized improvisation. The post-traumatic blues of Orkid will transform into an instrumental dirge, with drones and complex guitar textures, and post-metal instrumental explosions. The animated symbols making up the visual universe of the band will be the background of the illustrator’s live-drawing, in a concept based on the alternation of symmetry and chaos.
