The shock film Megalomaniac is gory, graphie and uncompromising, and confronts the viewer with the legacy and transmission of evil. Felix and Martha are the children of the Butcher of Mons, the Belgian serial killer. Each takes on this paternal legacy in their own way. Felix turns to murder, Martha is pushed into violence by other circumstances.

Is the evil innate or acquired? Karim Ouelhaj answers this question by confronting us with the depths of the human soul in a gripping phantasmagoria that will leave no one unmoved. Megalomaniac, which has already won festival awards, assumes its horror dimension with rare audacity.
