Interview: West Coast Film Programmers – Part One

Putting together a genre film festival of any type takes time, commitment (or committed), a reliable team, a diverse lineup, luck plus so much more. The western part of North America is rich with talent, history and film festivals that break the mold and continue to redefine the experience for everyone that becomes part of the events. From such cities in California like Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Diego to Edmonton, Alberta Canada to Seattle, Washington, we sat down with five diverse film festival programmers to ask questions that not only connect these festivals but explore their development, growth and survival. These five key organizers and programmers bring different perspectives, experience, selective eye as well as personality to this discussion as we covered a wide variety of topics gaining insight into what makes this annual celebration of film, fans and filmmakers a must to attend!

Get a Sneak Peek at the Plan 9 Remake

The first artwork and a sneak peek of the remake of Ed Wood's all-time bad movie classic Plan 9 from Outer Space, entitled simply Plan 9, are here, and it appears to be a more serious take on the subject matter.

John Johnson directs, and Brian Krause ("Charmed"), Addy Miller ("The Walking Dead"), Conrad Brooks, Matthew Ewald, and horror personality Mr. Lobo star.

In 1959 a film was released that would live in the minds and hearts of science fiction and horror fans for years to come. That film was Edward D. Wood, Jr.'s, Plan 9 From Outer Space, a story about aliens re-animating the dead in order to kill Earth's population. Though widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made, genre audiences could not resist the exuberance and love for the art of filmmaking that showed in Wood's work. John Johnson of Darkstone Entertainment has remade the classic film.

Plan 9 Remake Teaser Trailer

Yep. Even Plan 9 from Outer Space is getting the remake treatment. In fact it's getting two of them. Drunkenflesh Films has released its teaser trailer for their upcoming redux titled Grave Robbers from Outer Space, and the whole thing really just leaves me cold, despite its promises of "more this" or "more that".

Mind you this isn't the remake announced a while back from John Johnson and Darkstone Entertainment that is set to star, Conrad Brooks, Brinke Stevens, and Eric Lobo. Apparently one remake isn't good enough. This one will star, David "The Rock" Nelson, so, ummm ... yay?

Check it the trailer for Grave Robbers from Outer Space for yourselves. Thanks to Avery for the directions.
