Attack of the Greek B-Movie
6 July 2004 | by (Kos,Greece) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to analyze anything from the script.....i can tell you though, its as lousy as it can be. But that was what director mr.Koutras(former musician) wanted to achieve in the first place. The idea was to make a hilarious b-movie based on some classic flicks right back from the 50's. But the fun part is that he totally distorted and humorised every piece of fact that used from that period of sci-fi cinema.The movie is fast paced, totally enjoyable and became an instant cult from the moment that was released in Theaters all around.

You know , small budget really takes the creator's capabilities a bit further cause of the pressure to conclude as fast and as cheaply, the movie, as humanly possible. Thats why Koutras made an effort to produce something not as corny as a 50's or 60's sci-fi b-flick, but faster, more up to date and definitely funnier than any other cult, b-movie film that came out. I think that this director is making fun of everyone and he enjoys every last minute of it. The good thing for this film is that the actors surprisingly followed the director's guidance and felt free to express their true selfes ,without having to worry about how the movie gonna look to the sci-fi audience that will see it.Finally, One thing i can say for sure...... that, i had a heck of a good time watching it.
