From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
Spoof science fiction. An alien mother and her child are pursued across England by a bunch of incompetent government agents and take refuge in a house full of vampires. Homage back to the camp tone of British directors of the 1970's such as Ken Russell, (The Lair Of The White Worm), Robert Fuest, (Dr Phibes Rises Again), and Joe McGrath, (The Magic Christian). Distributed by Troma in the U.S., it contains violence, nudity and exploding bagpipes. Written by
Wonderful melange of aliens, gore and bickering vampires
In the realm of budget-lite, digitally shot horror/sci fi flicks (see THE DIVIDING HOUR, SHATTER DEAD, etc.), the British import ALIEN BLOOD is far above average. There's not much in the way of a story, but the CGI effects, achieved at a fraction of the cost of MINORITY REPORT'S catering bill, are extremely impressive; it helps, clearly, that the film's creator Jon Sorensen is a veteran FX man.
Still, what puts ALIEN BLOOD over the top is the sheer inventiveness and imagination Sorensen injects into this wonderful melange of aliens, gore and bickering vampires (with such a mix, you simply CAN NOT go wrong). Here's hoping he'll go on to bigger and better things.
