Noble attempt at SF Schlock, falls flat
26 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Making bad movies into "art" is a tricky thing. The SF & Horror genres in particular seem to breed a whole subgenre of Cult Bad Movies. But, to be truly a work of Schlock, the filmmakers must be trying to attain art - and have it totally fail - I.E. ROBOT MONSTER, PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.

NIAGARAVATION is a very looooooooooow budget film which has its heart in the right place, but fails. As the film begins, there's a bit of promise as a sort of knowing spoof on 50's & 60's genre cliches. Unfortunately, that promise soon gives way to tedium, repetition, lack of originality, poor attempts at humor, and more tedium.

I encountered the film at the Annual Boston Science Fiction film Marathon (bostonsci-fi.com) several years ago, with director Romano and some cast/crew members (everybody does a little of everything on films like these!). The film was hooted by the audience, but once we heard Romano speak, we soon realized his sincerity was genuine. He got big cheers for his effort. Even if those efforts are a failure.
