Full Little Dante Flick

Joe Dante does it again, making a fun little picture that captures the spirit of the b-picture. He dopes this like no one else. Not every film he has made is incredible, but this really deserves more attention than it has received (likely because it was buried as a television episode).

We have some great Dante regulars and new faces: Dick Miller, Robert Picardo, Dee Wallace, Belinda Balaski, Paul Rudd, Roger Corman, Sam Arkoff and Courtney Gains. This works as a companion piece to Dante's "Matinee" taking on the 1960s.
