Mad garagepunk Sci-Fi!

Being a garagepunk and trashfilm fanatic I've been waiting religiously for the European PAL release of "Sore Losers". I've heard the excellent soundtrack (with Crypt and Estrus bands) two years ago and I wasn't disappointed with the movie. Jack Oblivian (of Memphis' sadly defunct Oblivians) stars as an alien assassin who was sent to earth in '54 to kill beatniks and now he's back to kill hippies and other lowlifes. His sidekick is comicbook junkie Mike Maker (of trashrockers The Makers) and together they encounter various sleazy women who resemble an insane mix of Betty Page and Divine! The role list also includes Japanese lo-fi gods Guitar Wolf and the mighty monarch of exploitation, David Friedman (Bloodfeast, Erotic Adventures Of Zorro etc.) as The Elder. The plot is too weird to describe but if you're tired of MTV/Hollywood products and have a good taste in rock'n'roll, get your kicks with this low-budget (16 mm) wonder.
