4K RESTORATION! TORONTO THEATRICAL PREMIERE!

IT WILL GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES FOREVER!

A rooftop sniper guns down 14 pedestrians on the streets of New York City. A mild-mannered dad takes a shotgun and blows away his wife and children. A cop goes on a sudden shooting spree at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. And each of these unlikely killers makes the same dying confession: “God told me to.” Now a repressed Catholic NYPD detective (Tony Lo Bianco of THE HONEYMOON KILLERS and THE FRENCH CONNECTION) must uncover a netherworld of deranged faith, alien insemination and his own unholy connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind.

A quintessential NYC film from genre visionary Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE, Q: THE WINGED SERPENT, THE STUFF) that combines police procedural, horror, sci-fi, and religious satire into a dizzying and deranged social commentary as relevant today as it was prescient back in 1976. Propelled by Catholic guilt and punctuated with visceral kinkiness, GOD TOLD ME TO is a vital dispatch from a rotting empire. We’re presenting the brand new 4K restoration from the original uncensored negative. - Steven Landry
